Plain batch (save as Whatever.cmd); and the correct key btw is ...\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa:
reg.exe add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa" /v "restrictanonymous" /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f
reg.exe add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa" /v "restrictanonymoussam" /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f

Works just fine here. Any error message?
Note that as this is in HKLM, you need to run this elevated if UAC is active.
What's the output of
reg.exe query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa"

Any error message when running the "reg add" commands?
Did you run the "reg add" commands from an elevated prompt?

Can you please repost the exact command you ran to set the values?
Note that in your question, you had an incorrect registry path; check if the values appear directly under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Lsa (note that there's no key "Control" between "CurrentControlSet" and "Lsa"). If so, correct the path and try again.
