Yes, there have been studies that show a potential link between sleep deprivation and high blood pressure, such as those who sleep five or fewer hours each night exaccerbating already elevated levels or putting themselves at higher risk of developing high blood pressure.
This may be due to compromised regulation of a stress hormones when you lack sleep, which in turns impacts blood pressure.
However, I haven't done in-depth research on this and it's my understanding that a definitive connection hasn't been determined.
