In brief: Less likely

Although, stress is a reason for itchiness, but it would probably be expected to cause more extensive itchiness than just the ear lobes.
I'd look for other more plausible causes such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, allergic reaction, ear infection (skin infection) before i write it off to stress.
