I currently have a master-passwd file residing in the /etc/virtual/domain.com/ directories I want the master user to be able to log in to. Is there a way to tell passdb to only allow the master user login to proceed if they can auth to the master-passwd file in the same folder as the user? Alternatively, is there a better way to go about this?

What do you mean outside Dovecot-auth? Master user login is done in auth process. %{login_domain} should work I think..
