In brief: Likely not

If a peanut butter sandwich is part of an otherwise balanced diet, having one before sleeping would not matter. You should brush your teeth after eating and before going to sleep.

In brief: It is not bad

Hunger can worsen sleep.
A light snack before going to bed (not a heavy meal) may help sleep. As long as you avoid stimulants caffeine, tobacco), it does not really matter what you eat before going to bed as long as it a light snack, not a heavy meal.
