If an owner wants a higher contract rent than what is approved by the HCV Program can the tenant pay the difference between the amounts?

No - HCV determines what portion of the contract rent the tenant will pay. The tenant is required to pay the amount established. Your tenant may jeopardize their housing assistance if they are caught making side payments.
