No, the lender can not have you put in jail because they have a lien on you car. They can press charges against you in many states if your vehicle is up for repossession and you attempt to hide it or hinder the agency hired to secure it from recovering your car. Or, if the lender secures a replevin and you still refuse to turn over the vehicle, you will go to jail then for contempt of court.
