In brief: Yes.
It's possible for autoimmune disease of the inner ear to mimic the symptoms of meniere's.
There are various other diseases that can mimic meniere's symptoms too.

In brief: No
Meniere's disesae is characterized by episodic vertigo lasting 30 minutes to 2 - 4 hours, fluctuating progressive hearing loss (often low frequency), plugged sensation in the ear and a roaring tinnitus.
There are autoimmund disorders that may have some of these characteristics but not all and not as "rhythmic" as meniere's.
