In brief: Yes
Untreated chlamydia in women can cause pelvic inflmmatory disease (pid) which can lead to scarring of the pelvic structures including the fallopian tubes.
If the tubes becomes scarred, the probability of developing an ectopic pregnancy is much higher.

In brief: It can cause it!
Chlamydial cervicitis is frequently associated with salpingitis that can predispose to infertility and ectopic pregnancy.
Be sure your partner is also treated fully if you have been diagnosed with this infection.
