You might be asking too much from the tools.  Unless openpyxl has some
special knowledge of ipywidgets, what you're looking for won't work.
ipywidgets has web-based components, that work from web browsers.

You can use the cell data validation features to restrict the B2 cell to
a valid date value, and the cell formatting ability to set the visual
representation to a date, but that will not be sufficient to turn it
into a date picker.  You will have to deal with VBA or form components
to do that.  I'm not aware of such capabilities in the various xlsx
writing libraries.
