Dart led 2-0 in the second set but was overpowered by her opponent and fell to defeat in just 62 minutes.
She had been hoping to make a maiden first-round appearance in Paris having already made it through to the main draw of the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and US Open.
Her loss, coupled with the injury absences of Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund, means Britain will only have four representatives in the singles - Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie, Johanna Konta and Heather Watson.
