In sssd.conf I had set the following:

I'm afraid not.
Taking it a step further, how do I get SSSD to automatically mount the AD homeDirectory?
SSSD does not mount the directory, automounter does.
SSSD provides data, either all or a subset that automounter then uses to
mount the directory. In your case, I assume SSSD provides the
automounter maps and keys which the automounter deamon reads but also
info about the user, like their name and homedir.
If your users had the homedir set to a location that could already be
used by automounter (so getent passwd $user returned $path only), you
could have used the $HOME substitution autofs offers.
But since you need to do some post-processing on the values, maybe the
autofs executable maps could be used? See man 5 autofs, maybe you could
feed the executable map the full attribute value and chop off the
hostname? That's just a suggestion, though, I've never actually used
