The only reasons I can see for using a ND filter with flash are:

Shooting outdoors in bright conditions, and being constrained by the x-Synch speed of your camera and your desired aperture.

That's what Sailor Blue said:

"Outdoors...the ND filter is used to reduce the ambient light exposure."

Uh... a neutral density filter would reduce the over all exposure not just the ambient.

Oh poor thing, but there is lttle one can do about the ambient light, whereas one can often turn up the flash - that is the point.
