Yes ScheduleDAGMILive is used by the MachineScheduler which runs before register allocation. By default the MachineScheduler is put between register coalescing and the greedy register allocator.

(There is also the PostMachineScheduler which as the name suggests runs after register allocation and that one only uses ScheduleDAGMI and does not track register pressure).
