Does the chances of a guy getting mouth thrush after giving oral sex to a girl with a yeast infection increase if the guy regularly smokes?

Yes: Yes, Oral Thrush/yeast infection can be transmitted by oral sex. The risk increases in smokers. The best option is to treat vaginal yeast infections early...as soon as they are suspected and diagnosed.
