Not unless the insulation has a nick, cut, hole in it or the water happens to find it's way somewhere it's not supposed to be. There are a million miles of hot conductors lying in water in underground conduit.

The underground conduit should be water tight unless its damaged in any way.

All underground conduit gets water in it no matter how well you try to seal it. Condensation is one main reason along with leaks.
As long as you used wet rated wire or cable you are fine.
