Actually, the reverse makes more sense to me.
Annarose planted the blueprints for a young witch (which turned out to be Sumer) to find. Sumer made dolls, that Belfyna (and other nobles following her cue; that she herself got from Annarose) then bought and made armies for themselves, destabilizing the power structure of the area, and greatly contributing to the whole war of the sun and moon erupting.
This seems a possible theory to me since MD creation process seems like it involves at least some soul manipulation, and that's right up the Abyssals alley... however, they have literally no resources at hand and have to make others do their dirty work for them. The nobles basically funded a war against themselves through Sumer's work (who, and I'm really just making this up, is most likely slowly becoming a soulless husk herself due to the doll creation process).
Annarose/Galdirea can't create armies on that scale, but they can create either single superpowerful monsters(the augmented), or just scheme and strike where it hurts most (the whole incident with Noze and the WK).
