There's an app named User Management for what you are asking. But, the app requires root access to work. So, your device needs to be rooted (which voids warranty).
For now there isn't, unless an add-ons for WhatsApp will enable this or they built it in themselves. It's comparable to Facebook, user set their own avatar and this can be seen by friends. This works unlike your contact list in which you control the content and other users have no say in adjusting the content.
