No, they actually mean different things. The phrase "tous les jours" generally has the literal meaning of "every day".

On the other hand, "toujours" means "always" or "still". It can mean "still" either in a time sense or as in "in any case".
Hi Neil, an old lady once asked me  "ils sont toujours la" (referring to my parents in our conversation).  I think she means  'are they still alive'  am I right?    Merci de votre aide.
