Computers connected to a windows domain are accessable through computerName.domain.tld
Is there a way to automatically add PTR-records to these on a local AD-integrated DNS-server?
If not: why?

Yes, but it might not create the reverse lookup zone by default. Take a look at this technet article explaining how to setup a reverse lookup zone.

This article explains how to setup the automatic PTR records.

If you are using DHCP with DNS server you can use this with the following procedure Go to Start–>Administrative tools—>DHCP This will open DHCP MMC snapin now you need to right click on your DHCP select properties this will bring properties windows now click on DNS tab under this select “Always dynamically Update DNS A and PTR Records.
