here is no OOB web part or application page avaliable for user self changing the password in AD in SharePoint, you need to create a SharePoint web part programmatically to let users reset their password in AD.

Their are two options

  1. Create your own webpart and let the user to change their password. check these two posts.links or How to change active directory password using Code?
