No, when you go back to the store and re-download it it will say: "you have already purchased this app, do you want to download it again for free?" and so there you go...

Don't delete copy from your iTunes

A word of advice is to never delete an app from your iTunes software. If the app is removed from the App store for any reason then you will not be able to download it again. But if you keep a copy in your iTunes software then you can always install it from there even if the app is removed from the App store.
