In brief: It is possible

The deep cleaning will only remove bacteria and calculus from the tooth root.
However, if you have a serious cracked tooth that goes through the outer layers of tooth enamel and dentin, it is possible..

In brief: Not likely...

... but coincidences do happen.
The instruments from a deep cleaning and the forces exerted are not strong enough to break a tooth. The tooth was most likely compromised and would have broken during your next meal. Don't blame the hygienist or dentist.
