Is it possible to create user groups using Active Directory id's and then assign roles in Jenkins? Instead of using Jenkins default user name management?

Yes, it's possible.

Go to Jenkins' configuration - Access Control - Security Realm.

Choose LDAP or Delegate to servlet container (depends on where you want to put your LDAP config and how your Jenkins is running) and fill you LDAP informations.

Then in Authorization part you can select a mode which will ask the LDAP for rights. You can use user's login or LDAP groups to define the rights.
