In brief: Unlikely
Although Levoxyl (thyroxine) can have endocrine and metabolic adverse effects, such as menstrual irregularities, i doubt that your wife's diminished breast milk production is related.
As an aside, although Levoxyl (thyroxine) enters breast milk, adverse events to infant or mother during breast feeding have not been reported. I am not sure of the cause of your wife's decreased milk production.
