In brief: Yes it can
Pituitary tumors are complicated.
Most produce excess hormone, but some interfere with hormone production. Hormones from the pituitary many body fluids, thyroid levels, steroid levels, salt management, kidney function, all of which can cause changes in blood pressure. Careful adjustment of pituitary hormones is very important with any pituitary pathology.

In brief: Possibly
Posterior pituitary tumors can secrete hormones.
If the tumor secretes growth hormone (gh), adrenocorticotropic hormone (acth), or thyroid stimulating hormone (tsh), high blood pressure may result.
