No. There is a certificate that is created & installed with The Local
admen account. This certificate is used to encrypt The EFS files .

Subject: Windows EFS and Changing a Local Account Password

If you are using Windows Encrypted File System (EFS) on a PC that is not
part of domain, and you change the password of the local user account
that was used to encrypt files and / or directories, will you be locked
out of the ecnrypted files?
