I've never tried ConTeXt myself but the LaTeX handling part of
lilypond-book should be applicable. The only minor problems I can
think of is that you may have to explicitly tell it to work in
LaTeX mode (lilypond-book -f latex ...) and that it will not be
able to interpret what line width you use in your document, if it
deviates from the default (in LaTeX).

Did you consider using LaTeX instead of ConTeXt? It's used much
more than ConTeXt for ordinary document typesetting.
