No. You have to run the RSAT version of the tools since the Windows 2003 version won't run on a Windows 7 workstation, but you are still connecting to the Windows 2003 active directory. Everything will work fine, except that some things display a little bit differently because the RSAT tools are slightly different than the Windows 2003 management tools. Also, when you run the group policy management tools, you will see some policies that are applicable only to Vista/Win7 and that won't apply to your Windows 2003 and/or XP (if you have them) computers. The Windows 2003 and/or XP machines will just ignore those policies that don't work for those OS's.
