NT/LM hashes still use standard cryptographic functions, you just need
to use some of the primitives within OpenSSL and format the actual
ciphertext.  JtR's API is built around deconstructing ciphertexts and
cracking the resulting hashes, not generating ciphertexts - even the
internal tests use pre-generated ciphertexts.  The tools are there if
you push to use them, but you'll still have to format the ciphertext
yourself, at which point you'd probably be better off using a standard
library instead of JtR's internal-only bits.
