No. A KDE program is a program that uses the kde base libraries, many of which 
are based on QT libraries.  A QT program doesn't use kde base libraries.  KDE 
has bindings so that KDE programs can be written in many languages, though 
most are writtemn in C++.

A QT program will run without the KDE base libraries, while a KDE app won't.
