Rubber trees do not tolerate cold well at all as you have discovered. It may come back if not too badly damaged. You may find that it dies back quite a bit but that it will resprout from the baseor lower parts of the plant. Prune away any parts that are mushy or obviously beyond repair, then wait and see what it does. In the meantime, keep it indoors.
