In brief: Would be unusual

You may have two separate and distinct yet concurrent problems.
Infected tooth mandates immediate treatment. Swelling inside tongue is worrisome. Red bumps can indicate lesion. Please see your Dentist or an Oral Surgeon without delay.

In brief: Tooth Infection

Dental infections can spread.
.. not sure if the tongue swelling is related or not. Swellings under the tongue can be quite dangerous since they push the base of your tongue into your airway. You need to be seen and treated ASAP.
