In brief: Doubtful

Usually other causes (crowding) for crooked baby teeth @ age 1.
Make sure to take your child for cm-up, evaluation of tooth and jaw growth, hygiene instruction, Fluoride instructions, and so much more. Don't wait 'till 2-3, please go now. Ask dentist to ck tooth alignment.

In brief: Maybe

It is possible for your baby's teeth to be crooked from a pacifier even at this age.
It is not likely though. I recommend ending the pacifier between the ages of 12 and 24 months.
