In brief: Probably not related

Being pale has many causes but not specifically associated with asthma.

In brief: Pallor not asthma

Pallor is certainly not seen in controlled asthma.
If your son were having uncontrolled asthma - coughing, wheezing, labored breathing - not responding well to albuterol - then he might be pale for that episode. Pallor all the time is not likely a result of asthma. So...Are you sure that its asthma? Other lung diseases mimic asthma & may be accompanied by pallor due to a lack of oxygen.

In brief: Pale

Is anybody else in your family fair-skinned or pale? If so, maybe its genetic.
Does he get sunburned outside or does anything bad come of the pale skin? Have you spoken to your pediatrician about this? If not, you should. Does anemia run in your family? A simple test could be a launching pad to an answer.
