Can consuming a lot of sugar before a blood pressure test cause hypertension?

In brief: Not hypertension...

but possibility transient elevation in blood pressure which is not same thing as hypertension.
Acute hyperglycemia (very rapid rise in blood glucose) in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients can cause significant hemodynamic changes including elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressure by 10 mm. This would be unlikely in a non-diabetic patient.

In brief: No

There is no known correlation between high glucose levels and high blood pressure.

In brief: Not likely

Sugar consumption has little effect on blood pressure, even in a diabetic, unless that individual develops low blood volume and dehydration from extremely high blood sugars, in excess of 600-700, .

Rapid rise in glucose in newly diagnosed DM II has been show to increase SBD and DBP by approx 10. High glucose in hyperosmolar hyperglycemic nonketotic syndrome is associated with low blood pressure.
