In brief: Yes

Contact lenses are like glasses in that they correct any refractive error.
If a cataract is causing a refractive error (i.e. Myopia) without decreasing the sharpness much due to cloudiness, then contact lenses will help. Otherwise if the cataract is too cloudy, then contact lenses may not make the vision any better.
