In brief: Unlikley

You can try some mineral oil in the ear before you sleep (assuming there is no hole in the ear drum).
There is also a nice prescription medication for itchy ears called dermotic oil.. Your primary care could prescribe or your local ent.

In brief: Sleep

Stress could cause itching as a symptom, ear itching seems specific, rule out a bite sting etc before assuming its psychological.
