20 years ago Colin Wilson offered a wide range of low level Windows NT components, all free, his web site http://www.wilsonc.demon.co.uk/ disappeared years ago, but you'll still find his components on Torry and such places. Certainly Net Users, Groups, Servers, etc, but this might predate active directory.

I found a copy in one of my old projects. Attached.

 

But... Instead of using 25 year old, undocumented, and probably superseded APIs it might be a better idea to use something like WMI. There are lots of libraries that makes use of WMI easy from Delphi. This one for example: https://bitbucket.org/anders_melander/windows-management-wrappers/src/master/Source/amWindowsManagementInstrumentation.pas
