In brief: No, but. . .
Raynaud's phenomenon (constriction of blood vessels to the fingers and toes, when exposed to triggers like cold weather) should not affect the heart circulation.
However, other diseases that cause raynaud's (such as autoimmune disorders, hormonal imbalances, artery inflammation, drug effects, etc...) and the drugs for those diseases, or drugs for raynaud's symptoms, may affect heart circulation.

In brief: Unlikely
Usually only peripheral.
If there are other underlying conditions, arthritis, lupus etc then there may be heart effects.
