In brief: Possible
It is possible that an epidural can result in scar tissue and thus pain, however it is much more likely that the reason for the epidural in the first place is the cause of the current back pain.

In brief: Epidural & back pain
There might be no relation between your back pain and previous epidural injection.
You might benefit from a comprehensive evaluation. Mri and/or x-ray of lumbar spine might be useful to identify the cause of your pain.
