The tempo is used in Ardour to determine where the measure/beat divisions
go.  If you're playing with a click-track, it will speed up or slow down
depending on the BPM chosen.  As Paul mentioned, if you were playing MIDI
tracks, these would adjust, but any pre-recorded tracks would have to be
adjusted in some other way.  Time-stretching regions is one way of doing
this.  Some tracks also could be modified using the Rhythm Ferret 
but that works best with certain types of tracks, like percussion.

Hope this helps explain it a little better.
