I don't recall the tree, John, but if you just chopped it, I think it has had enough insults for a season. "burned" leaves or no, I think removing them might be a bit too much damage. Roots DO need leaves, and you've already removed a bunch.

Leave it be and work on something else till next year.

we have had some strange weather around these parts, John, and I suspect you have been getting wider temp swings than me. I have several small Japanese Maples that have suffered from the overnight cold spells. The young tips look like they dried out, but the cold was the culprit. If some leaves on yours have turned to brown and dried, they should be replaced in fairly short order with increasing warmth. If you can, place the tree in a place where it doesnt get hammered all day by full sun as this would only speed up turning your leaves crispy. As Jim said, just nurture your tree for the rest of the growing season and resume more work next spring. Can you share any photos of it?
