If you mean nip out the top after the final truss, I would have said yes...

are they bush or cordon tomatoes, as both kinds can be grown outside?  :)

Shouldn't need to as being determinate they grow to the right size and then call it a day.  In theory.   

However come the back end of the season the usual trick is to pinch out any new competitor flower trusses that will take plant effort away from ensuring that all the earlier produced fruit ripens properly.
