Would beneficial nematodes help with whip worms? The vet says they live in the soil.

No they won't. Beneficial nematodes work by infecting an adult insect or larva with a deadly disease. Whipworms are in the egg form while in the soil and not subject to the method of infection of the disease. I doubt they would be affected by the disease even if they were exposed to it.
