RetroArch announced today a new plugin that uses Vulkan API will be released this week. They say this represents a giant leap forward in N64 emulation.

Will N64 on the Wii be able to benefit from this at all?

It seems it does rely on powerful hardware so I doubt it'll help with N64 emulation on the Wii.

Pretty sure Vulkan requires hardware capable of at least an OpenGL 3 like feature set. Wii isn't even close. Besides, at this point I think it's unfair to expect devs to keep supporting Nintendo's little box. It's had a much better run than I would've ever expected but it's time to move on.
