I've completed the above steps, however when I try to link my local (domain account) to my Microsoft account I receive a message "John Doe is already here"  (I substituted John Doe for my real name).

Any suggestions.

What I did was after joining my computer to the domain, I made sure my domain account was a local admin. I then created a new local user as an administrator. I deleted the original local account which was tied to my Microsoft account. At that point I had to perform the steps in EvilVirus's response, before I could link my Microsoft account to my domain account on the computer.

The last two steps were done in Settings - Accounts.

You should log on as the new local user before deleting the other account just to be safe.

Hope that helps.
