The Frie- part of Frieden is very distantly related to the "free-" part of "freedom", yes. The endings don't seem to be related.

The original meaning of the root behind Frieden, frei and "free" seems to have been "nice, kind, beloved"

Freiden is cognate with English 'FRITH' (peace). It also forms the name 'Fred' in various name compounds.
