Your setup looks fine from what I can tell, but NTLM does not use the
domain separator and usernames in NTLM authentication will always be seen
with the \ separator.

This can be considered a bug in the Samba ntlm_auth helper

Try if using a simple proxy_auth acl works better to start with

acl all_users proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow all_users

Also verify that you have given Squid access to the Samba privileged pipe.
This is normally only accessible by root. You should see some warnings in
cache.log or the Samba logs if this is the problem.
