Is there a link between hemangiomas and factor v leiden mutations?

In brief: No

Both are very common and this is probably a coincidence.
The factor v gene isn't part of the pathway by which new vessels form, and this speaks against there being any correlation. There are a few other genetic syndromes with distinctive hemangiomas, but factor v has not been linked to any.
