It sounds worse than that though. I would double-check your timing marks as after a couple of engine revolutions with a freshly installed belt, their positions can change. The marks must be dead nuts on. Check with a straight edge and dental mirror across the cam bolt centers at TDC.

I think if your car is running poorly there is another issue. There could really be a sync issue or maybe a vacuum leak somewhere among other possibilities.

The valves won't hit the piston tops, but in very rare cases the intake and exhaust valves may bump into each other.
Both of the cams would have to spin to a stop in exactly the 'wrong' spot in order to have this occur. I have never seen it happen.

This possibility is listed in the Gates Rubber Company's website for timing belts. They will let you know which engines are interference and which are not.
