Dust can block your fans, therefore restricting airflow which may make your components overheat and then die. So yes.

Much before that it will cause thermal throttling and shutdown

Not if the capacitors over heat. I think any heat will reduce their life span.

If you have a good psu, overtemp should kick in

If it has accumulated a lot of dust for many months, it is probably a good idea to dis-assemble the PC while brushing & Vacuuming.. Usually for routine maintenance, it wouldn't at all be necessary to detach anything..
