No. Le can be used in future time frame.

        e.g.       明天    你        下了         課   來找我!

                     míngtiān nǐ           xià-le       kè     lái zhǎo wǒ!      

                     tomorrow 2p.sg leave-LE class come see 1p.sg

                    ‘Come to see me after class tomorrow.’
