In brief: Possibly.
Memory is a complex function of the brain that is dependent on many different areas.
If a pituitary tumor is sufficiently large or spreads to other areas of the brain, then it is conceivable that memory would be affected. However, other symptoms, such as disruptions in hormone levels/functions and changes in vision, are far more likely.
