My mom said live plants make aquariums warmer is this true? I want to add live plants to my axoltols tank to help with parameters?

The temperature will not change from live plants. Finding plants suited to the cold temperatures is somewhat tricky but anacharis usually does the trick.

Plants themselves do not make the water temperature warmer, however i would advise against it. Plants need an installed light in order to grow. Axolotls do not do well in light and it stresses them out. Just do your weekly water changes and it will be fine.

Your mom is probably really sweet, but not an engineer, or a biologist, so maybe not absolutely correct about this.

I think that your mom meant emotionally or ascetically warmer rather than something that can be measured with a thermometer.
