In brief: Not directly, no.

Hiv does not cause a lesion on the penis itself, but there are several other associated penile lesions that are more common in people with hiv.
These include condyloma (hpv virus), molluscum contagiosum (pox virus), rarely, kaposi sarcoma (hhv), and penile cancer (hpv virus), among others. Other std's are more common in those with HIV too HIV can though cause swollen lymph nodes in the groin.
