/probably/ not.

nullReference is usually a software error - like when you try to read a string from a memory pointer that has not been initialised.  That kind of error will normally crash the application, or under managed code, will be shut down by the runtime engine/interpreter.

out-of-memory is usually caused by applications that do not properly release allocated memory properly.

the two are possibly related (still unlikely) for example if a software routine allocates some memory, then crashes due to null pointer without freeing up those allocated resources.  this is very unusual (perhaps impossible) for managed code like asp and c# etc, but if you have some native code plugin modules (isapi, httpmodule dlls, etc) then those can cause these kinds of problems.

I suggest that you inspect the behaviour of the relevant script/s (e.g. /CMSPages/PortalTemplate.aspx) and determine what modules are called.  then inspect each module source code for the kinds of problems referred to.

Cheers.
