Is it OCD to react with extreme rage/depression when circumstances prove to be beyond control?

In brief: OCD

Although it may occur in some with ocd, it is not diagnostic in and of itself.
Many people may have similar reactions without a diagnosis of ocd. It is true that control and fear of loss of control occurs in this condition.

Not necessarily, depending on the situation, could be a defense mechanism, anxiety or mood disorder.
