Possibly: White tongue may be a buildup of bacteria on your tongue. The waste from the bacteria can cause bad breath.

No relation/relation: I am not aware of any relation between a tonsil stone and a white tongue, however, a white tongue maybe related to bad breath if it has some disease or condition like thrush or yeast.
