Yes, it is confirmed that the Model S and X wheel offset and bolt pattern is the same.
Only the specific tires sizes are different - see the referenced thread for more details:

The 20" wheels have front tires in size 265/45-20 and rear tires in size 275/45-20.

Maybe I'm late to the game here, but I'm a bit surprised that they'd use different sizes front vs. rear, so that you can't rotate tires. Maybe I was just burned too many times by the early Model S suspension issues.

Good point on the tire rotation issues. You could always put a set of the front wheels on the rear of the car as some Model S owners did.
 
Anybody know if my set of snow tires/wheels that I use on my Model S (stock 19" Tesla wheels) will work on the Model X? Love to save a few $$ by not having to buy a second set of wheels/tires for the X. Thanks!
The bolt pattern will be the same between the two models. Smaller wheels will make the X ride lower. If you have the air suspension on your future X you could compensate for that.
Also keep in mind that the overall diameter of the X wheels/tires will be larger than that of the S so your speedometer and odometer will be affected. Unless they can update the settings in the car computer at the service center.

I think the speedometer may be calibrated via GPS. I have put on different circumference tires and the speedometer is deadly accurate when checked with other GPS devices. I have always been a little amazed at how accurate it is across all speed ranges.
