Nope, it would not. The "rebuild" option essentially drops & re-creates an index. There is another option, "coalesce", which re-balances it, sort of. Coalescing an index does not change the level of the index being coalesced, so even if you deleted most of the records, the level of the index will remain the same after coalescing. It will not remain the same after a rebuild.
