There are two issues:

A) Setting the field in SQL Server
B) Creating the directory

A) Use a SQL Statement like:

Update SubAccounts
Set HomeDir = "\\server\share\" + login
Where AccountType = "PPP"

Repeat as often as needed changing PPP to what you need.

B) Create the directories.

What I did a while back was this query:

Select cmd="MD " + homedir
