Do the Lightroom lens correction tools make good lenses less important?

Lightroom has Lens Correction tools such as Distortion, Vignetting, Chromatic Abberation, etc. depending on the brand and model of lens.Due to this feature, is it less relevant what the distortion quality is of lenses because Lightroom can correct them?I understand a perfect lens is always better, but since it can save a huge amount of money, maybe the expense is not worth it?
