For all I know, you may be right. Still, as the similarity is only those four notes at the beginning of the "Stargate" theme, and then goes different places afterwards, I'm inclined to think otherwise. Also, it's my impression that it's far more Horner's style to recycle and even re-invent his own motifs than steal those of other composers, so I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. I have no evidence for that, though, just a gut feeling.
