In brief: Don't use drugs
Panic attacks shouldn't cause heart disease, but certain drugs can.
Many batches of ecstasy also contain dangerous stimulants which can accelerate heart disease or atherosclerosis such as Cocaine and similar. Many can also cause dangerous heart rhythm problems.

In brief: Not likely.
Ecstasy can cause acute coronary or cardiac muscle disease, damage, or death.
But if not used chronically, it's unlikely to cause coronary artery disease.
