In brief: No
I was asked this a lot in san diego by mexican families.
Also I have been asked this by south american families. There is a misconception about this phenomenon in certain cultures, but no medical evidence to show any impact on fertility from tonsillectomy.

In brief: No.
In general ear, nose and throat infections will not have an impact on fertility in any direct way.
There may be rare situations such as tonsillar tuberculosis that may have a fertility impact, but this is due to the tuberculosis, not to the tonsillitis per se.
