In brief: No

Meibomitis is an inflammation of a type of gland in the eyelid.
It cannot cause rosacia in the way you are thinking. However, any inflammation in the skin may trigger an attack. So it is possible that whatever caused the infllammation in the eyelid could also trigger a rosacea flare up if you are someone who is prone to that. It is very unlikely however.
