Perhaps you mean Baby Pacman?

No, it was definitely Ms. PacMan.

About halfway down:

Baby PacMan:

"Baby" has better looks, and from your description it sounds as though the play was about the same, except there was no joystick with Ms. Pacman. You used the flipper buttons to control the lights on a gamefield when in PacMan mode, and when you "died" the regular pinball came back to life, the ball kicked out of the drop-in target, and you were back to pinball.

Baby PacMan looks as though it has an actual video screen. Ms. Pacman was much earlier, and just had a playfield with a 10x10 matrix (maybe 12x12, maybe 8x8, don't remember, really) of lights which were either yellow (you) or red (the monster). Very basic, but still challenging.
