Depends on what your definitions of a virtual machine and OpenGl support
are. :-)

All CPU level virtual machines (like bochs, qemu, virtualbox) can run
emulated OpenGL in their guest operating systems.

If you are asking if there is a virtual machine that passes OpenGL calls
directly to the hosts' OpenGL system, the only things that come to mind
- FreeBSD jails
- the Wine MS Windows emulator.
