This is generally a difficult question to answer for steep roofs traditionally collect less debris and leaves which holds moisture or water, which invites water damage from the growth of moss or even algae. However on the other side of the coin, this same roof that is traditionally un-shaded or not protected from the full impact of the sun, can also cause additional wear and tear to the roof.
Realistically the factors other than general roof pitch have a greater overall impact or effect on the shingle or roof durability. For the side that takes the bulk of the damage via weather, sun, moisture, or any other aliment will have shorter life expectancy than that of the one that was properly vented and maintained on a regular basis.
