I've never used mod_auth_ntlm, but my guess is that the slow speed
results from constant re-authentication. The mod_auth_sspi module on
windows has a special config flag for this:
SSPIPerRequestAuth : set to 'on' if you want authorization per request
instead of per connection

Maybe mod_auth_ntlm has something similar?
If not, you should maybe try the kerberos module.
