The answer to that would be no. Applying a warm/hot clothes over eye or any part of face will not help tighten lower lids. If you want to tighten area you may have to consider a surgery or some type of facial, lasers or maybe even some type of tightening cream
Can putting warm cloths over eyes several time a days tighten the lower lid?

Warming lids for improvement
Your logic is flawed. Warming tissue relaxes the small blood vessels which brings more fluid and swelling. Cooling contracts the vessels and decreases swelling. Elevation of your head while sleeping decreases swelling. These are temporizing measures but can be marginally useful depending on the severity of your eyelid swelling issue. Ultimately removal of swelling fat pad tissue is a permanent solution to your concern.

Lower Eyelid Tightening
Warm cloth over the eyelids helps treat blepharitis, which is a common cause of inflammation and itchiness of the eyelids with occasional associated dry eye and irritation of the eyes as well. It would not cause tightening of the lower eyelid. The only option for tightening would be medical (peels, lasers) or surgical.
Tightening the lower lids
No, warm/hot cloths over the eyes will not tighten the lower lids. Feels good though... You may want to visit an oculoplastic surgeon for examination and advice. Depending upon the laxity and other factors (?ectropion), you might benefit from laser resurfacing to tighten the skin. On the other hand you might need surgical tightening. To prevent worsening of skin, tendon, or muscle laxity - avoid rubbing the eyelids. Best wishes.
