My little brother claims that the dwarves in LoTRThe Lord of the Rings were created out of jealousy by one of the Valar who looked at what the others had created (namely, Elves) and said "I should have my own people", and made the Dwarves.

I trust him, since he's read the books many, many more times then I have, as well as the appendixesappendices. He claims this assumption is from the Silmarillion, which I have not read. Is he correct?

Were the dwarves in Lord of The Rings accidents/created out of jealousy?
