Not if done right: If the tooth is properly prepared and the inlay putbin correctly there should be no problem.

Probably not: A porcelain inlay is a passive fit so it's unlikely to crack a tooth. Because it doesn't cover the biting points of the tooth, however, it also doesn't protect the tooth from cracking during normal chewing or harmful tooth grinding during sleep.
