Does anyone know whether Ulmo ever returned to Valinor?

Despite the fact that Ulmo prefers to dwell in the waters, and despite the fact that he still visited Middle-earth, he frequently goes to Valinor for councils.

He was present at the discussion that decided Earendil's fate, for example:

But Ulmo said: 'For this he was born into the world. And say unto me: whether he is Earendil Tuors son of the line of Hador, or the son of Idril, Turgons daughter, of the Elven-house of Finwe?'

There's no reason to suppose that there's anything preventing him from going to Valinor whenever he wishes.
