the short answer is no. No food processor dices anything.
However, when you have a lot of chopping to do, and it isn't essential that everything be exactly the same size, the food processor can be a great time saver. It does, however, take some practice to get it to work the way you think it's going to, and many people get frustrated with the fact that it's not "magic" and decide to fuggedaboutit."
OTOH, tomatoes are always going to be too fragile to put through a food processor unless you want a pur�e, unless they are not ripe, then they can be sliced,
The Cuisiinart Food Processor used to have a set of 12 optional blades that would allow the user to slice very thinnly and to make several different sizes of julienne. I don't believe the current owner of the company is marketing that set any longer, more's the pity. I still use my optional blades very frequently.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
