Were the Columbine shooters neonazis?

No- however, they were known to be racist and some viewed this as admiration towards Nazi beliefs.

In a classmate's account, Dylan Klebold was known for going down the hall and apparently "railing" against kids of other races, pointing them out and calling them racial slurs. Eric wrote in his journal about his feelings towards those of other races, however, he made an online rant about anti-racism, and how much he hated inequality. It was known that he used to have best friends of different races.

Towards the buildup that led to the Columbine shootings, the two of them wrote more aggressively about racism, but then it turned more into misanthropy than anything else. However, what likely led the media to brand them as racists was the way they taunted one of their victims and used racial slurs before they killed them.
