Can gravitational field strength cause time dilation.
as G.F.S on earth is 10 N/kg and on moon it is 1.6 N/kg. so will a clock on the moon surface tick slowly for the observer on earth or not?

No, gravitational time dilation depends on potential, not field strength.

But artificial gravity is provided in gravity free space satellite to increase the efficiency of the persons inside.
It means they moves very slow in G. free space, and clock too?
Does vibration of cesium atom also change?

Yes. (Technically it is a hyperfine transition, not a vibration)
