samba-tool has these options, invoke help to list all of them.
I found an option "--mail-address=" for samba-tool what works, but it is
not documented in the man-page or in the help (Samba 4.1.17).
As far as I am aware, setting the mail address has always been there:

root@dc01:~# samba -V
Version 4.1.17-Debian

samba-tool user create --help
User's email address
Ah, thanks!

I did not found an option to set the common name in samba-tool. I will
search further, thanks for you help!

--use-username-as-cn Force use of username as user's CN
I want e.g. "john" as username and "John Doe" as CN. so not the same.

Ah, well, that would be :

--surname=SURNAME User's surname
User's given name


So far I know the username is "sAMAccountName" in Samba terms.

With regards,
Paul van der Vlis.
