In brief: Overexposure

Someone could conceive ably overexpose themselves to known allergens such as dust, mold or other allergens.

This could result in an asthma exacerbation in a known asthmatic.

In brief: Not possible....

Asthma is a disease characterized by intermittent bronchospasm and inflammation of the airways.
The bronchospasm can be due to allergies, viral infections, cold air, etc. The bronchospasm can be induced in the lab in susceptible patients but you cannot get asthma "on purpose". You can get an asthma exacerbation by exposure to allergens if you have known asthma.
