For anyone else who is looking for this, the solution is to filter by Event  in sentinel logs, after enabling Windows RDP logs under DATA => Windows Events Logs. 
You can use the following query for test :

and RenderedDescription contains "failed because the user name or password is not correct. "

EDIT: found it: Azure Sentinel Workspaces / [workspace ] / Settings / Workspace Settings / Advanced Settings / Data
