Not as far as the complexity settings are concerned, as the passwords are only stored as hashes, so existing passwords can't be tested. The new complexity settings will only apply when the user changes his password the next time.
Maximum Password Age, if it hasn't been active yet and you activate it now, will apply immediately. The age is calculated dynamically from the time the password was last set.
