I haven't come across anything linking strings and the passage of time, do you have an article handy? Temperature can be seen as one measure of the vibration (vibration being a measure of the energy) of a system, but I don't really see how it could be linked to time. We know that entropy and time are related, if not one in the same, and that in the end everything will be a hot cloud of fundamental particles, but again, I don't see any other link between heat and time. Although...(forgive me, I'm thinking 'out loud' here) temperature is a direct result of energy, and energy warps spacetime, so you could maybe argue that one affects the other. I don't know the math well enough to say for sure though.
