Oh yes they can. Boredom = depression = overeating, self harm (chewing paws, scratching etc.). So, ultimately your hamster may die from obesity or from infection, but the underlying cause could indeed be boredom. If you are unsure, there are a host of better sites on the Internet where you will find more detailed information. Alternatively, ask your veterinarian.
