I bought a pair of these jeans online. I usually wear 32x30 size jeans but the pair I was sent were 32x46 and the legs are extremely baggy. Will washing them sufficiently shrink the diameter of the legs so then I could get them hemmed or should I send them back? To rephrase: Is the diameter of the leg independent of the inseam size?

Send them back. Most jeans these days are pre-shrunk, as to advoid serious shrinkage during further washes. Are the jeans really 46 length, I didn't even know they made them that long?

If they're straight-leg jeans, the diameter shouldn't be greatly affected by length. With any sort of a flare, as with boot-cut jeans or wider, it's going to make a bigger difference. Try cuffing the jeans to the appropriate length and checking the ankles. If the width looks good to you, just have them hemmed.
