lyx should know .dot files itself when graphviz is correctly installed. no need for preamble hacking, just insert it as a normal picture.

Well, it seems you don't have the graphviz.sty package correctly installed. Maybe this can help you. Anyway there are other ways to embed Graphviz in LaTeX, see a previuos answer of mine.
