That won't stop them if they are already running in a celery worker or already in your messaging queue backend (e.g. rabbitmq; redis), but it will prevent the message to do them from being emitted again by the airflow scheduler to your messaging queue backend. To be thorough you have to do both - stop the scheduler from scheduling the tasks anymore (by failing them individually and/or the DagRun in the metadata database) and, if you want to make sure the tasks that already got picked up stop and don't try again, you have to kill their worker processes and make sure your messaging queue is clean of messages of that task type. If you don't care that any already started or queued up tasks finish, you can simply doctor the metadata database.
