Not quite. Exceptions are where you're facing a low-armour foe, where 4(d3 + STR) is worse than 4(d4 + STR) because the armour bonus doesn't make up for the missing 4 damage sides (however, accuracy is -3 for warhammer vs -4 for axe), or you have very high STR and the higher weight of the axe makes a difference. However this does push the balance more towards warhammers; great axe could maybe do with a minor buff such as +1 accuracy (battle axes will still be better for lower strength, and score more criticals).
