Do orchids like tight pots?

Yes, orchids like tight pots. A pot is too big and therefore has too much potting mix will hold onto more water than your orchid can drink, which will make its roots rot. That being said, if your orchid is completely root bound, repotting it in a slightly bigger pot is a trigger for it to grow bigger leaves, bigger spikes and bigger flowers.
