In brief: ....hard to say

Although, menopause in and of itself doesn't cause high blood pressure, going through menopause or so called perimenopause may cause blood pressure instability due to unstable hormonal profile women experience during this transitional phase.
In some elevated blood pressure persists in menopause, whereas others may return to normal BP readings.

In brief: May be age related

Not sure if menopause itself causes high blood pressure but the chances of developing high blood pressure increases with age.
Since both are phenomena of age you might think they go hand in hand.
