Yes, RT will create a new account by default. There are a few options.
You can configure RT-Authen-ExternalAuth to disallow mail from email
addresses that aren't in LDAP. Or you can use the MergeUsers extension
to go in and merge people together after the fact.

If all their addresses are in LDAP, there's a branch of
RT-Authen-ExternalAuth you could test.
