Yes*. However, deleted questions still count when the system is looking at how many poor quality questions you may have asked.

/* If the post is more than 60 days old and has a score of 3+ you don't lose the reputation.

re footnote: sounds like a loophole to get the Disciplined badge without rep cost. Why shouldn't one lose rep on deletion of old posts? – Shawn Chin May 24 '12 at 12:31
@ShawnChin - now that is a can of worms you're opening there. – ChrisF May 24 '12 at 12:32
@ShawnChin - start here for some background - blog.stackoverflow.com/2012/03/… - basically changes were made (instant rep recalcs) which made rep loss from post deletion more obvious. To say that some people complained would be an understatement. – ChrisF May 24 '12 at 12:35
