The ANN encyclopedia and IMDb both list him as the producer for Nausicaä.

He had. As a producer. (He's also the co-founder of Studio Ghibli alongside Miyazaki)

I found an interesting tidbit relating to a few other Ghibli works when reading his page on Wikipedia;
Quote:
In 1971, to make the animated feature Pippi Longstocking, Takahata left Toei Animation along with Yoichi Kotabe and Hayao Miyazaki and transferred to "A Production" (present: Shin-Ei Animation), an animation studio founded by his former superior, Daikichiro Kusube (楠部大吉郎 くすべ だいきちろう?). They travelled to Sweden to acquire the animation rights and to hunt for locations, only to be turned away at the door by author Astrid Lindgren. Though their plan was frustrated, Miyazaki found inspiration in the fortified town of Visby and would later set both Stockholm and Visby as the stage of Kiki's Delivery Service.

Even I knew that coming into this.
