He did not.

The day before he had walked out about the time an African American had won. Since the war that was seen as a racist sleight, the Germans claimed it was coincidence, that it was his planned departure time.

as mentioned above, J.O wrote..

“When I passed the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back at him. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour in Germany.”

Once again, in no way meant to make Hitler sound more human, but in a discussion like this it is essential to stick to facts (which are bad enough when it comes to 3rd Reich) buttering the bread with hearesay and legend minimalizes the real horror of the era.
