In brief: Possibly

The United States government believes there is an association between agent orange that was used in vietnam and a variety of cancers including multiple myeloma.
Although there is no conclusive proof of causation there are benefits for veterans exposed to agent orange who develop multiple myeloma.

In brief: Not really

There have been associations with certain dyes and herbicides but no strong associations other than exposure to high doses of radiation.
