The short answer is maybe.

It depends on your email provider. You iPhone and Mac are syncing email via your provider not with each other directly.

So some more details about who the email provider is and whether you connect using IMAP or POP3 is required.

Gmail doesn't support folders. Only online filters. You can setup filters in the web interface and have those reflected as folders in your mail client. But not the other way around.
