In brief: Rarely
There are case reports in the medical literature of pineal tumors causing psychosis.
That means it happens so rarely that when it does, someone writes a paper about it!

In brief: Yes
It is possible. Pineal tumors can be associated with alterations in hormone levels that could lead to psychosis.
But it isn't very common.
