It's possible that she saw the Horn as a useful thing to have in her arsenal, but she may have not even believed it could work. iirc, most AoLers didn't. OP is science, a Horn that summons dead heroes whose existence was probably mostly legend to begin with? that's magic. Personally, I think that she saw it more as a symbol of power rather than powerful itself (whatever her beliefs on its power). Something to use as a symbol/idea, not a real-world weapon. Like she used it with Rand: a source of temptation. Probably to push him towards glory, but also towards saidin and herself. Temptation comes in many forms.

And:
You know you have a dirty mind if you saw 'Lanfear's Horn...' and were disapointed to find out that it's actually about a horn.
