In brief: No
Usually the answer to that question is no.
That said, the nerves could have been injured at the time of the injury, or swelling could have caused the nerves to loose some function. If this is a recent finding, a call to your orthopedist is warranted.

In brief: Its possible
Depending on how severe and involved the fracture is, it is possible to have decreased sensation in the toes.
If you have an injury which involves one or more fractures and you develop a large amount of swelling, this can lead to decreased feeling in the toes. If this occurs the foot needs to be elevated to decrease the swelling. It is not good to have numbness of the toes from an injury.
