It was printed in 1601. The title page of _Love's Martyr_ says 1601, and 
Boris Borukhov confirmed this date quite thoroughly in _'The Phoenix and 
the Turtle' Was Published in 1601_, N&Q 2006 53.1, pp.71-2.

Presumably you just got confused with The Passionate Pilgrim, even 
though in the rest of your email you're definitely referring to The 
Phoenix and Turtle, or "The Turtle and Phoenix" as the inner title page 
puts it. Shakespeare's poem doesn't really seem to have a title of its 
own, not that we care much about original titles these days ("All is 
True", "The Moor of Venice"...).
