It's probably not going to hurt anything this time, but you don't
want to do that on a regular basis.
Brake fluid will cause the o-rings to swell up and could cause binding
in the chain or complete o-ring failure.

If you haven't already oiled/waxed the chain, go back over it
with some WD-40 or some light lubricant to clean it and then
apply the oil/wax.

I doubt it will hurt anything on a single occassion, but don't do it all the time.
