No, this is bad advice.

First because Tor relays (and their addresses) are public anyway.

And second because having an ssh port exposed to the Internet will draw
enough scans that it had better be secure, regardless of whether running
a Tor relay nearby to it draws any more attention to it.

(Please don't spread fud about the risks of running relays. Especially
as there *are* risks, like any other Internet service.)
