Sounds very possible to me.  A sticky cold-start valve would cause the 
engine to run rich all of the time, which would "load up" the plugs and 
possibly, if it's bad enough, cause excess fuel to leak past the rings 
and into the crankcase.(re: fuel in the oil)  It would have to be pretty 
effin bad though...
