Nope. You might want to try CartoDB, but you should know that making things dynamic and making things performant are opposing goals.

comment Is there a paid service for accessing a PostGIS/OSM DB
This is the only answer that actually addresses the PostGIS part. Though, to be clear - CartoDB exposes a web API to PostGIS. There aren't any services that allow a socket-style connection to a server 'in the cloud'.

comment What is the best open-source web mapping solution for handling 3000+ polygons
Yep, it's the most common way. Here's the documentation on adding tooltips that way. If you're super-allergic to GUI tools and a Python/Mapnik pro, there's also a cli route that avoids all of that but is a bit cryptic.
