I have a small Lemon Cypress tree I was keeping inside for the winter. It turned all brown. If I put it outside and continue to water it, will it come back or is it a goner?

Trees often lose leaves and/or turn brown when they're indoors for the winter, because it's difficult to give outdoor plants enough light indoors, and the humidity level can also be a problem. However, most of these plants will come back in the spring. Try moving your plant outside gradually so it has time to adjust, as explained in this article:
Also, be sure not to overwater the plant until it starts growing again. Check the soil each time and water when the soil is dry, but don't let the soil stay soggy.
