In brief: Yes
A small kidney is scarred and will raise systemic blood pressure to perfuse itself.
Medical management with drugs such as ACE inhibitors or angioplasty may be indicated.

In brief: Possibly
A kidney that is small from scarring or a disease process and will raise systemic blood pressure to perfuse itself.
However kidney size varies and one may be a little smaller and that may not cause high blood pressure.
