No, it should not.

The reason why is because the Dive Ball works on Pokemon that live underwater, and only Pokemon that live underwater. The battle with Lugia is in a mystical pink (yay, pink) field, not underwater, so technically, it will not be as effective to use a Dive Ball.

Oh, makes sense, thanks!
Technically it would work, but it wouldn't have the boost to the catch rate. If you use it on a pokemon underwater, the catch rate is 3.5x, otherwise it is the same as a normal pokeball.
I used it first try and it caught with ease
