Money Fetish is the closest I can come up with, though I'm guessing you're looking for a reaction to money as a religious or soulful experience rather than something, uh, physical.

I scanned the Money Tropes index and couldn't find anything closer. You could try to create a proposal at the Launch Pad to see if there are enough examples to merit a trope page.

I think it's viable along with other more specific subtropes of Odd Job Gods, as long as there are enough well-written examples.
