With over-tight schedules and lack of communication, ...
We need to find out the causes, which may include pressure from peers, lack of communication and over-high expectations.
Is there anything wrong with the two underlined "over" in the above sentences?
I would use "overly."

Does this mean that in the word "over" in "over-tight" or "over-high" in the above sentences is a noun not an adverb?If I used that, I wouldn't use a hyphen.
No. It's an adverb, meaning 'excessively'.
