It's all too obvious he has no relation to Tobi. Orochimaru does not collaborate with others, especially not in a supportive manner. He's following his own goals. And I don't think he was lying about the war...
If you recall, he was going against both Konoha and Akatsuki, and Akatsuki wanted him dead.
As for Madara, notice he thought it was Nagato who revived him. That implies he lived much longer than anyone thought, and died only shortly after Nagato's birth, after he gave him his Rinnegan. The fact that Tobi knew as much as Madara and that he had the same hair as he did before cutting it short, hints towards a Madara-Hashirama cells type of clone, something like an upgraded version of Zetsu. I really doubt any of the Hokages turned evil lol...
