As much as I wish that to be true, but unfortunately it's just a rumor started by someone adding her name to the IMDb's cast credit.
Ms. Lansbury is not in the series, confirmed by The Downton Abbey's official twitter.
One can only wonder why would someone attach her name at the first place. Really disappointing, I was hoping that could've finally be her Emmy's ticker.
The good news is that she may do another Broadway show next year: http://www.wnyc.org/shows/lopate/2011/mar/24/angela-lansbury/

Oh of course, Mama.

And It's a shame to hear that, I still wait in hope though, of course.
