No doubt many a heteronym-loving invalid, has spent a happy evening over her bass pate, evening the social score by finding invalid pronunciations for her priggish peers to object to in a game where the object is to addle the pate of the opponent. But the rest of us generally can tell a bass from a viola when the wind is southerly.

Most users of English manage to negotiate heteronym-infested waters quite well by attending to context, and I doubt that there's much ambiguity available in the phrase "Bury the lead" even if you don't use Chaucerian spellinge.
