Are images from the E-m1 actually better than from the E-m5?

Re: It will be marginal at best

Well, what you lose would lose in the highlights at ISO100, you gain in the shadows, so horses for courses.  This assume the base ISO of the sensor is ISO200.....

In any event, at either end of the DR spectrum, the total DR I get from my E-PM2 just seems silly compared to the camera it replaces (an E-PL1), where I regularly found myself exposing to the right (and I still do so, habitually, even though it doesn't seem anything like as necessary, most of the time).
