I don't think Thurman over-acts the role at all. Her intro scene does stray a little bit into overly cheesy territory, but I think that has to do more with the dialogue and the way the scene is lit than it does with her actual performance.
To each their own, though.
She does very much fit into the same mold as Burton's villains and Two-Face and Riddler, and, despite the cheesy aspects of it, her introductory scene does remind me, functionally, of the scene in Batman Returns where Selina confronts Max Schreck.
