Can seasonal allergies cause a feeling of throat tightness?

Yes. Sometimes extensive exposure to pollen can cause throat tightness and even a more severe allergic reaction that could trigger hives, trouble breathing and throat tightness.
Possibly. However, if it is truly a feeling of throat tightness and swelling this is a medical emergency and needs immediate attention. Often people with allergic rhinitis have some throat complaints due to post nasal drainage and congestion.
