If you take Tylenol for pain, does it also lower body temperature as it does with fever?
Yes it does...

It may as an indirect effect since you don't feel the pain anymore you are more relaxed. This will cause your body temperature to go down.
No it doesn't.
Tylenol's active ingredient is acetominophen which has antipyretic properties as well as pain reducing properties.
Antipyretics cause the hypothalamus in the brain to override the body's immune response to infection that causes fever (triggered by pyrogens from the infective agent). Antipyretic literally means "against the fire", therefore, if you don't have a fever then your body temperature will not be lowered and the body will regulate its temperature as normal.
