In brief: Should not affect.

Pituitary tumors, unless massive in size (affecting other areas of the brain), should not affect speech.

In brief: Generally never do

The centers for speech in the brain are not near the pituitary gland.
Therefore, this problem is not seen commonly and is not described in the scientific literature. If the tumor is secreting growth hormone, there may be crowding of the contents of your mouth causing a change in speech. Also if the tumor grows laterally and extensively it may effect some of the muscles of the face affecting speech.
