"If I didn't see you tomorrow, I would kill myself."

Is this a grammatically correct sentence?

It would be far more common as "If I don't see you tomorrow, I will kill myself."
I can't think of any context where your version is better.

"If I didn't see you tomorrow, I would kill myself."

Yes, it's grammatical and possible. For example, consider this conversation between a couple who are besotted with each other:

A: Would it be so bad if you didn't see me tomorrow? I mean, it wouldn't be the end of the world, would it?

B: If I didn't see you tomorrow, I would kill myself.
