I have a feeling my irons are either too long or too upright because when I choke up my shots are smoother and fly straighter with more power. So does choking up actually flatten my lie angle?

Yes, for every inch that you grip down, the lie angle will be flatter by one degree. Plus, gripping down an inch or so generally gives you more control with a very minimal decrease in distance. Usually, the decreases in carry distance are mainly in the short irons.
