Yes you should notice a slight difference, (i know I do, especially going from a worn out 180/55 to a new 190/55)
There are two reasons:
1 since the old tire was worn down it had a smaller circumference, meaning less distance per rotation = the feeling of more power, similar to increasing the number of teeth on the rear sprocket
2 also since the tire is worn down it has less rotational mass which also translates to better accelleration and the feeling of more power
