I have been diagnosed with seizure disorder. For 25 years i survived on 4 to 5 hours of sleep for my job. Could this be the cause?

In brief: No

I don't think your long hours on the job caused your seizure disorder.
That said, in patients with known seizures, prolonged periods of sleep deprivation can definitely aggravate their seizures.
