In brief: On the contrary

A tongue tie, or an abnormally short lingual frenum, can cause speech problems.
Often the solution is the "cutting" of the tie. It's kind of unusual to be diagnosed at the age of 36. This procedure is most often done in kids.

Getting one's "tongue tie cut" is not typically associated with worsening speech.

In brief: Not likely

For many people being tongue tied actually causes speech issues, relaxing this attachment should not cause speech issues and may improve any present now.
