Can acute kidney failure cause thyroid problems?

There is no direct connection from kidney disease and thyroid disease.  Both can and do occur in the same patient.  Thyroid illness, diabetes and kidney disease are all commonly seen together but kidney disease does not cause diabetes or thyroid illness.  Diabetes certainly does cause kidney disease, but I am not aware of any thyroid illness that directly causes kidney disease.
