are you referring to the run as user for Tableau Server? If so, see the below link. It's best if the id has admin rights to the windows server, however if for whatever reason this isn't possible, then there are some local security policies that you may be able to set.
What exactly to you mean by "generic AD"? A service account (a.k.a. faceless account)? Because a service account makes sense to me but security at your company is different than mine. Do they understand what the AD account is exactly for?
If they still insist on assigning specific rights then tell 'em "Full control"

Thanks for all your response and support. We have solved this issue. The steps would be the following:
1. Create a normal Active Directory User Id (Let's say the name of the ID is tableauadmin)
2. Add that AD Id (tableauadmin) to the "Administrator" Group in the Tableau Application Server.
Now after Tableau Server installation, while configuration provide the Active Directory Id as tableauadmin and the password for the user tableauadmin. So the ID (tableauadmin) become the Administrator ID of the Tableau Application.
No Additional Role / Privilege is required at AD side.
