In brief: Wisdom teeth

If the teeth and or the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth becomes infected, you could experience a fever.
Your immune system would be compromised so you may be really tired aw well.

In brief: Yes, but

Yes, but only when associated with local symptoms like pain and swelling.
You will not get flu like symptoms from wisdom teeth without local inflammation. For best results, see a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon for exam/xrays/recommendations.
