The reason that Catherine "masterminded" the real ledger was to cause
the mill to lose money. That was the plan that catherine had. Now to
achieve this loss of money, while appearing to actually make money (as
shown by the phoney ledger) is quite a trick. You can't just stop
taking orders and refusing to work to lose money. That's kinda blatant.
Catherine needed to be losing money, but she also needed to hide this
fact from Josie who would have caught on right away if the mill had
stopped taking orders.
Thus there is no lie there, just a misunderstanding from the viewers.
