In brief: Doubtful
It is conceivable, but not likely, that a sebaceous cyst will be mistaken for a lymph node, but cannot imagine it causing a swollen lymph node.
Perhaps another doctor will comment on my response and correct me.

We will occasionally see swollen lymph nodes associated with infected sebaceous cysts, but not very often. Most sebaceous cysts, even when infected, are well localized.
