This could be a blurry remembering of the Outer Limits episode, The Light Brigade.

Relevant quotes from the Wikipedia article for the episode:

Unfortunately the aliens ambush the ship, and use their unique methods to trick the survivors of the Light Brigade into failing their mission.


....bomb is released over what the crew believe to be the alien homeworld. It is in fact Earth,....
