Can I use a flat head screw driver to terminate wire into a cat5e or cat6 connector?

Defiantly no. If you use anything other than the appropriate punch down tool you will damage the teeth that hold the cable in place in the connector. If these teeth are damaged the cables will not make proper connection in the connector and the signal will be compromissed.
