Not necessarily.  For testing purposes, you could replace the WP 
template tags with static content and save it to a temp html file that's 
opened in a browser.  Some things would be easier than others with this 
method (a paragraph or two of lorem ipsum for <?php the_content() ?> for 
example), but most things should be easily doable.

It might not be the best way to do it, but you'd at least get an idea of 
what your theme is going to look like with content, but without the 
weight of setting up a web LAMP/WAMP/etc stack.
