Yes, there's a shared lib available in Debian:

The preceding project tooLAME, from which TwoLAME has been forked off, 
did only provide a CLI executable. The missing library was one of the 
reasons for the fork AFAIK and tooLAMe is dead upstream now.

According to the package description for the Debian package, libmad0 
is able to decode all three layers of MEPEG-1 audio, i.e. MPEG-1 layer 
3 which is created by LAME as well as MPEG-1 layer 2 which is created 
by TwoLAME.

BTW, the TwoLAME API has been kept as close as possible to the LAME 
API, which should make the creation of a GStreamer plugin rather easy, 
since there is allready a LAME plugin available.
