Does sharpness of the image increase when a higher mega pixel camera is used?

Does higher megapixels mean sharper images? If you use the same lens, settings and scenes, will a higher MP camera produce sharper images than an low MP camera?

Each lens can only produce a certain amount of detail, which means that increasing the number of pixels at a certain point no longer makes sense, because the given lens is not good enough. Higher megapixel sensors are also more susceptible to camera shake and generally perform poorly in low-light situations (because a single pixel is smaller and can collect less light).
