In brief: Yes
Aortic dissection or aortic dissection surgery can irritate the phrenic nerve which control the diaphragm. If it is irritated by the aneurysm or with the surgery it can result in a chronic cough.
This should be brought to the surgeon's attention as a chronic cough could provoke additional injury to the aortic if it is severe enough.
