We have made some links nofollow in recent weeks, but they are still showing up in Google Webmaster Tools. Does GWT ignore these links? Will they vanish as the index is updated, or do even nofollow links show up here?

No! Google Webmaster Tool only shows all the links pointing to your website but not showing all the do follow and no follow attributes..
