First, you'll need to get Apache configured to authenticate users
against your AD. The exact mechanism to do this will depend on your AD
layout, but you will need to specify

AuthzSVNAccessFile /file/wherever/access-file
Require valid-user

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Subversion repository"

AuthLDAPUrl ldap:://
AuthLDAPBindDN CN=...
AuthLDAPBindPassword changeme

in your relevant <Location> of your httpd.conf file. The AuthLDAP*
directives are detailed in the above Apache docs. The
AuthzSVNAccessFile directive should point to a configuration file as
documented at
