I think you looking for Qt deployment tool.

Deploying Qt Applications: Deploying a Qt application does not require any C++ programming. All you need to do is to build Qt and your application in release mode, following the procedures described in this documentation.

More info for deploying applications in windows here.

The Windows Deployment Tool:
The Windows deployment tool is designed to automate the process of creating a deployable folder containing the Qt-related dependencies (libraries, QML imports, plugins, and translations) required to run the application from that folder.
