Yes: A symptomatic kidney stone can cause nausea and vomiting. If it is severe, please go to the nearest emergency room to be evaluated and treated.

Renal colic.: Merely having a kidney stone in you will not make you vomit. But, if a stone tries to pass and gets stuck, you will get tremendous pain (one of the worst pains known to humankind, actually) and with that pain you will probably vomit. This is called renal colic.
