Authenticating webservices in an NTLM environment

Some quick background to the system architecture first;

1. Alfresco 2.1 system "AlfrescoProd" running on server A, configured to authenticate via NTLM against Active Directory on domain THEDOMAIN
2. Custom java application "AceApp" running on server B, which also authenticates via NTLM against Active Directory on domain THEDOMAIN

I have a requirement to make some web services based calls from AceApp to AlfrescoProd to pull some alfresco based content into AceApp. Is there a way to use the NTLM credentials that have already been gathered by AceApp's authentication mechanism along with the web service calls to AlfrescoProd to make sure that the web service call is executed on the AlfrescoProd side as the same user that is using AceApp?
