Is there a web app that can find a celebrity face match for an uploaded portrait?

Pictriev is exactly for this purpose. You give it a picture and it will find other pictures of the same person.

I've tried a few examples using pictures from the internet with varying degrees of success - it seems to give better results if the person is "more famous" (ie. there are more images of them on the internet).

You could try tineye.com, which will show you other sites that have similar images hosted on them. Then you could go to one of these sites and it might have a caption which says who the person is.
