Not really. All they share is the visual 'look up at the golden city from down below' picture of class division.
The key difference is that there are no outsiders like the Enterprise crew in Elysium and that the ending is more radical than in Cloud Minders.
It has been some time since I watched this TOS episode (which I do not like) so my opinion is hardly representative but I have not thought about episode at all while watching Elysium which, as I already pointed out, reminds one more of District 9 due to the same director and the same "dirty" action elements.
