No, a lunar eclipse makes the Moon red because of the Earth's shadow and the dust in our atmosphere causes the wavelengths of the remaining light to
be less visible.
A brown dwarf would not change the Moon's color at all because the Moon is a nice collection of grey rock and only reflects light. A brown dwarf is
only a weak star that would more closely resemble Jupiter in appearance, and its arguable of whether it creates any light at all.
