They're both forts on top of a slightly mountain-shaped hill, so what? They don't look anything like eachother.
And if you haven't noticed, building fortifications like that is very common because of the tactical advantage of having the higher ground.

Well it is fairly known that Whiterun is made as a tribute to Rohan.
Take a look at the Shield of Whiterun for example.

There's nothing particularly special about a medieval-esque residence being built on a noticeable, but manageable peak or hill. It's easy to find, remember, defend, fortify, etc...

Actually, Whiterun is based off of the town from LOTR (I forget the name)
Both symbols are horses, they are both centrally located, both play a big role in their stories, both have a devious plot to have an evil force to control of the throne.
Not to mention the architectural style looks very similar.
