Yes. An earthquake can cause a dam to fail. Earthquakes can cause large ground shaking that can damage the integrity of a dam, leading to instability and possibly failure.
The seismic waves associated with an earthquake may also cause liquefaction, which is the loss of soil strength and stiffness. This can cause the dam to fail and the water contained within it to be released.
