A too tight chain can overload the bearing behing the drive sprocket and in the rear wheel. It can also stretch the chain itself causing it to wear out early. Shouldn't effect speed on hills though unless it is so tight to cause a mechanical drag on the bearings. Adjust it for about a 3/4" up and down travel when you are sitting on the bike.
