What they wanted Shinzon to do was to proceed with "an attack on the Federation", with "defeating the Federation", apparently by rallying a joint army such as envisioned by the Romulan conspirators speaking to the Senate in the teaser. Shinzon's enraged sally from Romulan orbit towards Earth does not appear to be part of any plan agreed on with the conspirators.
And since when in Star Trek history, when the bad guy says he wants to attack "the Federation," it doesn't automatically equate attacking Earth, the "center" of the Federation?

Really, there's no good reason why Shinzon decides to go for Earth other than that it was a) bad writing, or b) Earth=Federation.
