No, it isn't.

The *actual* end-to-end principle states that whenever possible and whenever it makes sense, application-specific functionality ought to be incorporated into end-nodes rather than into intermediary systems.  In the case of LISP, it can be noted that either a) the end-to-end principle has no relevance, or b) LISP is closer to adherence to the end-to-end principle than the current routing system.
