Can bell's palsy cause complete deafness in the ear and swollen lymph nodes down to the clavicle on the affected side of face?

No: Bell's palsy is due to paralysis of the 7th (facial) cranial nerve on one side. Hearing is affected by damage to the auditory division of the 8th cranial nerve. It is possible, however, to have the same causative agent affect both of these simultaneously, although unusual. The enlarged lymph nodes are also a result of whatever is causing the paralysis rather than a part of bell's palsy.
