I've been unable to find the final wiring diagram that shows the bulb, but I think an extension cord plug will simply dead short the outlet plug when the switch closes. That dimmer plug seems to be a separate circuit than the socket molded into the plug. The dimmer switch originally changed the voltage to that socket and, in this project, the switch opens the circuit.
