No, pruning will not make the initial sync faster. The information that gets removed by pruning isn't accessed turning the initial sync.

Currently pruning makes the initial sync somewhat slower: more frequent flushes are performed in order to allow pruning to work, and the work of actually deleting things creates its own small slowdown. About the same is probably a fair statement in general.

The only configuration which can substantially speed up the initial sync is increasing the dbcache option. If you have plenty of memory (e.g. >4GB) making this setting larger can radically reduce the sync time, esp. if your disk is slow. For 8GB ram I recommend setting dbcache=4096 during the initial sync.
