If you have only removed the dead leaves and left the point at which the leaves grow from alone, then it should come back, However it should be growing by now as its summer time and along way away from last frosts

If you have completely chopped it off at the base through the 'trunk' or chopped the top where the growth comes from off, then probably no it wont regrow.
Palms grow from the top as that is where the bud is. They arent like nrmally plants and trees, that can grow from a cut branch.

Its probably dead esp if its not grown yet. Any chance of a picture?
