Misleading title. It's really the possibility that planets might be masked by efficient dust.
But this dust would have to heat up and it would radiate black-body radiation if nothing else. Thus the dust would theoretically show up on IR surveys, but the mass behind it might be harder to detect.

Also, solar winds and radiation pressure would probably disperse such CNT's fairly quickly.
