Yes. Absolutely. You can damage the board. Tighten them until they feel solid, but don't put your back into it.
I've seen an overtightened board and the screw taps were actually coming out of the board.
EDIT: I've had people tell me that you should not worry about it and just tighten them as much as humanly possible because they could come loose. The odds of all your screws coming loose and your binding pulling off the board is next to nill. If they get wobbly you can always tighten them, but if you overdo it, you could damage your board.
