In brief: Indirectly
If the cut results in sudden loss of blood it can.
Severe associated pain may cause an autonomic reaction resulting in dizziness. If a person is of an emotional, anxious nature dizziness may be a common reaction pattern.

In brief: Yes
Cuts on the head, even fairly minor ones can bleed significantly.
Dizziness can be due to excessive bleeding, a vagal response (often a lightheaded feeling), or from an underlying brain injury. It all depends on the size of the cut and the nature of the injury. If this persists i would certainly seek medical attention.
