There is no link comparable to the use of the two atomic bombs on Japan and the Japanese surrender. The main raid and Dresden took place on 14-15 February 1945 and Germany didn't surrender till early in May 1945. I'd go so far as to say there was no link between the raid and the surrender.

The bombing of Dresden was not justifiable because it was not war manufacturing city or military installation. Millions of civilians were killed because General Harris of the Royal Army Air Force continued to insist the war could be won by carpet bombing Germany. He failed to understand the citizens of Germany had no input on the matter of surrender. Those people in Dresden died it vain. The historical architecture was destroyed for the silly notions of General Harris. He was not given the medals and citations he felt he and his aviators should have received. The British were furious at him for what he had done.
