It's not completely clear want you want. Assuming the aim is to show two overlaid plots, where the top one is semi-transparent...?

From the help on transparency: "Objects that support transparency are: Image, Patch, Surface."

Your contour plots are none of these. In that case the easiest way would be to create each contour plot and use getframe() to grab the image data, and then use image() to redisplay the plots as images. You can then use "hold on" and the alpha() command as you did above.
