No, -vce(robust)- is robust in a very different sense than
-rreg-. When thinking of robust in terms of -rreg- you
worry about the effect of outliers on the point estimates.
Robust in the sense of -vce(robust)- has to do with the
influence of deviations from model assumption on the 
standard error. 

Hope this helps,
