can there be a link between high levels of creatinine in kidney tests and hypothyroidism?

No: These two findings, elevated creatinine, and low thyroid hormone, are unrelated. High creatinine is commonly associated with high parathyroid hormone, in case there was a sound-alike error in your question.
