In brief: No.

There is no association between these conditions.
One is neither the cause nor associated with the other. A distinct injury to the temporal lobe could conceivably result in both conditions, this would be very unlikely however.

In brief: Temporal Lobe Epilep

One type of tle occuring in the left temporal hemisphere results in a personality change referred to as geschwind syndrome, which consists of hypergraphia (urge to write) , circumstantiality (drifting in conversation) , hyposexuality & hyper-religiousity (increase morality) .
So, there is decrease interest in sex, instead of increase.
