Yes, Mason did lose, more than once according to the some sources I found.

From funtrivia, forum, one person states that,

Mason actually lost two murder cases in the original series. But in one, "The Case of the Terrified Typist," he was misled by his client, and in the other, "The Case of the Deadly Verdict," his client was eventually cleared.

Another person states that,

Mason is known to have lost, in some form or manner, three cases-"The Case of the Terrified Typist", "The Case of the Witless Witness", and "The Case of the Deadly Verdict".

Mason also loses a civil case at the beginning of "The Case of the Dead Ringer", partly due to being framed for witness tampering.

In NPR, states that Mason lost only one case though. Interview with Barbara Hale, who played Della Street in the long-running TV show, talks about Perry Mason's loss.
