In brief: Maybe

There are certain genetic disorders that that can affect you your stature and have related scoliosis.

In brief: Probably not

Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine, and does result in a loss of height, but probably not enough to account for short stature.
Most scoliosis occurs in the thoracic and lumbar spine and hence probably does not account for a short neck.
