In brief: Wisdom teeth

Yes they can. Most often, ear pain is caused form referred pain from lower wisdom teeth, but it can be from pain due to upper wisdom teeth.
Go see your dentist and get an evaluation with X-rays. Your dentist can find the source of your problem and recommend necessary treatment.

In brief: Wisdom tooth pain

Can to refer to other nearby areas of the head such as your ears.
That is not to say that you might not also have an ear infection. See your dentist for an evaluation who may also refer you to your physician.
