No it could not mean that. It could only mean that if someone doesn’t balance the scripture with the context and the character of God and also does not do a little research. It is very easy to pick a scripture apart to contest a single word or small phrase and then blow it out of proportion and context because one is offended by what that small part taken by itself could, maybe, possibly mean if taken a certain way.

Eze 33:11 "Say to them, 'As I live!' declares the Lord GOD,' I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways ! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?'”
The key to this is “created.” Everything was created for His pleasure even Lucifer before he fell but the fact is he rejected God’s ways by his own choice (free will) and man does the same. Everything is created for His pleasure it is not destroyed for His please.
From what I can tell, all things wouldn't be leaving anything out. This would include satan, man that would become wicked eventually, etc. This verse says, in relation to all created things...and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
