You must take the Log of the vertical axis range values
data = RandomVariate[ TruncatedDistribution[{2, 2}, NormalDistribution[0, 0.5]], 1000];
Histogram[data, 10, {"Log", "PDF"}, PlotRange > {{2, 2}, Automatic}, Frame > True, PlotRangeClipping > True]
Histogram[data, 10, {"Log", "PDF"}, PlotRange > {{2, 2}, Log /@ {0.01, 1.0}}, Frame > True, PlotRangeClipping > True]
However, since Log is Listable, this can be shortened slightly to
Attributes[Log]
{Listable, NumericFunction, Protected}
Histogram[data, 10, {"Log", "PDF"}, PlotRange > {{2, 2}, Log@{0.01, 1.0}}, Frame > True, PlotRangeClipping > True]
