In brief: No
Two separate diseases by they tend to happen together in most of the time, high cholesterol can be genetic or related to your life style.
Same with hypertension. Having both together will increase the risks and complications from both.

In brief: No
High cholesterol and hypertension are mostly separate issues although both increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
High cholesterol is primarily linked to cholesterol production by the liver (controlled by genetics) and lifestyle.
