In brief: Not particularly

Lyme can cause virtually any symptom and geographic tongue could be one of them, but I have not found geographic tongue to be common in patients with lyme.
Common causes of geographic tongue include celiac disease & other food allergies, environmental allergies, vit B12 & zinc deficiencies, hormonal imbalances & imbalances of flora. Of course many people with chronic lyme may also have those issues.
