Yes, they could.

Firstly, depending on the dose, you could get akathesia, which could present anxiety like symptoms.
Secondarily, the dopamine blockade could affect some mood / cognitive related processes which could result in increased anxiety over time. For example, in university, I briefly took olanazapine. However, slowly I noticed my thinking was not as sharp and I had difficulty with memory. This affected my confidence and ultimately resulted in more anxiety about performance in social and academic situations.
