Oh no it doesn't! Put something like this in your .festivalrc:

(Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "sox -r 16000 -w -s -t raw $FILE -t wav festival-out.wav")
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)

Then "echo hello world | festival --tts" will result in it creating
festival-out.wav with that phrase in it.
