In brief: Only indirectly
A high sugar diet can cause signficant weight gain.
That can increase blood pressure in and of itself. If one has diabetes, it becomes even more complicated. A higher sugar diet can reduce diabetes control which can worsen blood pressure and more importantly increase the risk of heart disease from high blood pressure. But will blood pressure immediately go up after eating sugar? No!
