So far (as of Bluez 5.30), there is no official BTLE API in Bluez. What's currently available is incomplete and only available in experimental mode. Hope is that eventually Bluez will catch up so that Qt Bluetooth can change its rather low level L2CAP based implementation against a DBUS API.
Besides a simpler (and possibly easier to maintain) code base this brings the additional advantage that Qt Bluetooth can utilize BTLE sessions which would permit several applications to access the remote BTLE device at the same time. Currently that's a limitation as Qt Bluetooth does not run any daemon.
