Yes, the cold feed to fill the flush tank is normally taken from the sinks cold supply and vice versa. However, remember to place an inline isolator so that at any time you have an issue with the flush you can stop the water and still have the feed to the sink unit. This is now becoming good practice. If possible spit the sink off as well from the main feed to have an in-line isolator there again to stop water to the sink but allow it to the flush - This is more important with a home that has a single toilet .
