I really don't think so..... but different paper can work differently on each 'style' of shot....
e.g. Matt is good for landscapes, Glossy is almost expected on newspaper/street shots, soft sheen is good with portraits. But even that's just a rough guide.... more important is the 'archivable quality' of papers - which is where you avoid any 'Resin-Coated' paper.
Art papers, like the Rags and Watercolour paper, can be good for, as you'd expect, more arty shots.
If you're really into B&W photography and printing, you may like to pick up the "Black and White Photography" magazine - it goes into all kinds of printable surfaces and, over time, you'll pick up on what works best.
I tried a quick Google search and didn't find much advice.
One site looked like it might be useful
and discussed a lot of different paper types, though not which style suits which paper.... but you could post your question there.
One thing I discovered was that it's cheap to buy 'sampler packs' of paper and trying different photo styles on them.
