No.

In geometry, a tetrahedron is a solid with four faces, which is a triangular pyramid (don't forget the base-face), and a regular tetrahedron has (4) faces that are equilateral triangles.

A tetrahedron has 4 faces. A "regular tetrahedron" has an equilateral triangular base with three equilateral triangles as sides coming up from it.

Trying to figure this out too...

The answer depend on the truncation but assuming it is by a plane parallel to the base, the truncated tetrahedron is like a triangular prism (except that one base is smaller than the other). It, therefore, has 5 faces, 6 vertices and 9 edges.
