In brief: Not very likely

I have never heard of a sty causing a dental abscess, but a dental abscess could possible track towards the orbit and have a site of drainage near the eye lid.

In brief: No!

A sty is a clogged oil gland of the lid margin.
A tooth abcess is an infection. One can not cause the other or be related.
