Well I am suspecting that the Library which you have replaced on the phone being used by the iTunes Match. If you are supposed to delete the playlist locally then it will replicate to iTunes Match as well. So you should not mess with playslist is the work around and put it into separate folder.

Yes you are absolutely right. iTunes match is supposed to sync the list of the songs. If you have deleted the playlist it will simply sync deletion among all the devices connected with the iTunes Match. It will display cloud icon for any of the songs which is available in the playlist but not in the device of yours. so i think you have got the idea why above mentioned thing happened into your situation.

You can use following steps to restore old iTunes library.
  • You have to close iTunes if it is opened.
  • Now go for %User%/Music/iTunes/ and rename iTunes Library.itl to iTunes LibraryOLD.itl.\
  • Now browse %User%/Music/iTunes/Previous iTunes Libraries/
  • After that copy newest iTunes Library file and paste it %User%/Music/iTunes/
  • Once done you have to rename file which you have copied to iTunes Library.itl
  • Finally you will need to restart iTunes.
