Does the light that emits from the Deadric artifact dawnbreaker help enemies to see you like the light from spells and torches do?

Simply put, yes. Even if the light emitted is very slight, any light that hits you or another enemy will help to give away your position. Of course, depending on how sneaky you may or may not get away with you attack.
