Water from your tailpipe could just be condensation, it is caused by a difference between the exhaust temperature and the surrounding air plus the presence of humidity. If it is coolant ( smells sweet )and you are losing coolant from your radiator you probably have a bad head gasket. Overheating can cause a head gasket to blow which can be caused by a bad water pump so in a roundabout way yes.

Depending on the location of the blowout or crack, it could seep water into the oil, or oil into the water. In some cases, the blown head gasket could seep water into the exhaust manifold, which will cause steam or water to come out of the tailpipe. If the blowout or crack is in one of the cylinders, you will loose compression and cause your engine not to start.
