"Is there any language where voiceless [h] and voiced [ɦ] form a phonological contrast?"

I cannot answer such a complicated question.

According to Ladefoged/Matthieson, The Sounds of the World's Languages, p. 326, "A few languages contrast h and ɦ. One group of languages that does is the Masa group of Chadic languages."
