Normally AD syncs the samaccountname to the username.  If only the email has changed, you shouldn't have an issue and depending on how you have your datamapping set up, the emails should update just fine.  If the samaccountname has changed too, then Moodle will create new accounts for every user unless you also update the Moodle database.  (You could do this a csv user upload.)
