In brief: Even death, yes

If a bloodclot clogs up the vessel in your heart, your brain, and your lungs, it can cause death.
Most of the clots from your legs, if proprogated, get caught in your lungs and eventually resolve with appropriate treatment. Small ones often go unoticed. If it is large enough to stop the blood flow/decrease it enough in your lungs, death may occur!
