Certainly worth a try, but I guess, jonwil would already have tried that.

Seeing the changelog [1], I would assume that using an older debhelper would break the current package or at least produce broken dependencies (which would have to be handled elsewhere):

* redo the rules file to some newer debhelper:
- everyfile should remain, nothing should get lost
- the scripts in the doc package gained an exec bit
- openssl gained a dep on perl (the package contains perl scripts)

- libssl1.0.2-dbg is gone, we have dbgsym now
- dh compat 10
- pkg.install instead of pkg.files is used for install
* Mark libssl-doc as MA foreign
* Update Standards-Version from 3.9.5 to 3.9.8. No changes required.
* Document the change for openssl's enc command between 1.1.0 and pre 1.1.0
in the NEWS file (Closes: #843064).
* Add an override for lintian for the non-standard private directory

Maybe reverting the patch(es) responsible for that change might help.
btw., there's been another debhelper-related change from 2013, that might or might not have to be adressed:
