Possible: A slight breeze should not cause issues, but blustery, persistent cold forces of wind can certainly cause strains in your neck muscles.

Yes, in Traditional Chinese Medicine they are called pernicious winds - some people can be very effected by this.

Are these tender neck lymph nodes a cause for concern?

Maybe: But probably not. The question is how long they have been there, what other symptoms do you have or have had, how large are they, are they soft or hard, and other numerous questions to be sure. Lymph nodes fight inflammation for a living, and when they do they may become larger and tender. If you are worried, see your family doctor.

It can be any one of those - and it's more prominent when lying down because of how gravity is affecting the skin and subcutaneous tissues. It's impossible to know what it is without an exam, however.
