If you create a negative energy balance either through eating less, exercising more or a combination of the two you'll lose weight some of which will be fat. If cutting carbs helps contribute to that negative energy balance then yes it'll help you lose weight but so would cutting fat or protein. Ultimately it all comes down to energy-in vs energy-out so the idea that simply cutting carbs by some arbitrary amount will cause fat to melt away is nonsense.
