For the most part, NO. LED's need air space to allow heat dissipation, even though they are much cooler to the touch.

They usually have unique heat sink technology to dissipate the heat that is internal at the junction where LEDs do their thing. Some LEDs such as landscape LED bulbs are designed to be used in contained landscape fixtures…..check the specs and labels.
