If the growing point is just scorched but not obviously dead and crispy, you could just shade the centre and gradually remove the shading as the plant acclimatises. That is if you want to leave it outside for the summer months of course?
If you can pull out the growing point with ease, then yes, cutting back to green growth, a water and feed and it should send up new growth from the base in time.
If you plan to keep it in the house all year round but need to move it outside for repotting, just ensure you protect the leaves from strong sun.
You don't say whether it is just a single trunk or multiple ? Perhaps a photo would make it easier to advise you - in all honesty, they are usually very forgiving plants and hard to actually kill
