This connection comes via set photos that had been taken on the set of The Mandalorian. Making Star Wars shared the set photo images which clearly show the presence of the Death Troopers.
There is a small argument to say that they might not be Death Troopers and possibly Imperial Officers in uniform, or another member of the Imperial Navy that has not yet been introduced, but my money is on them being Death Troopers.
First introduced in Rogue One, they appeared alongside Director Orson Krennic when he sought out to find and capture Galen Erso. They also appeared in Star Wars Rebels and have been referenced to in other stories.

Recognizable by their black suits of armor and specialized helmets. They are an elite version of the Stroomtrooper and act as part of the Imperial Intelligence.
One complaint about the Death Troopers is that they were not used to their full advantage in Rogue One, and in everything else that they have featured in. The Mandalorian has the chance to correct that wrong, assuming that it is definitely a Death Trooper in the set photo, by showing what they are fully capable of.
