No, that's a clincher wheelset. If you are a newbie, don't worry about light tires. You want a tire that will hold up well, be comfortable and preform. You'll get as many answers to that here as what bike should I buy. I ride Vredestein Fortezza TriComps. Love'em, but that's just one of many choices.
You can use an open tubular. It's made like a tubular tire (2 pieces glued together) but uses a inner tube and holds on to a clincher rim.
Vittoria makes some nice ones. They are light, expensive, have a supple ride, but don't expect them to be tough or last very long.
Heavier wheelset and lighter tire. 2 cents worth here but ride whatever you have on the wheelset at this time until they need to be replaced. When they need to be replaced find a good tough tire to replace them with, tire weight will not make that much difference. I am currently running on Conti Ultra Gators and the seem to be holding up pretty well. IF you have money to burn then get a lighter wheelset but still go with a good tough tire.
