I don't think you could do this with AD only accounts if you select windows authentication it will allow your ad users to login when you do this through the security in sql.
I would suggest creating a ad group for the sql users. Drop the users in there then in sql you could control the access and so on.

Sql authenticated is mainly used for local sql accounts but the above will work with your domain if that is what you are looking for.
