Are you sure Pratchett's dwarves are supposed to be Jewish? They look more like stereotypical Chinese: short, hard-working, famous for their martial prowess, selling their Foreign Queasine everywhere... The ones more likely to be Jewish are golems with their Sabbath.

Is there a Word of God on that?

Does anyone know where the "Dwarves are Scottish" trope came from?

Probably because Dwarves tend to be obssessed with wealth and Scots are supposed to be, plus both are stereotypically gruff.
