In brief: No, you cannot

Cause an aneurysm to from by blowing your nose.
However, straining, for example when having a bowel movement, increases your blood pressure, and could cause a weak walled aneurysm to rupture. The same could theoretically happen when blowing your nose, but that is usually pushing as long or as hard.
