If the liver be damaged significantly I can see how it could effect the pancreas, but I don't believe that the actual disease of hepatitis C causes pancreatitis.
Any significant liver or biliary disease could hold a secondary effect on the pancreas. To answer your question NO hepatitis C damages the liver, not the pancreas.
