You could try hi-lock-mode (and define ^H.*^H as a pattern to
highlight with "M-x highlight-regexp"), but that would leave those
ugly ^H characters visible.

What if you hid them using the display table?

(or buffer-display-table
    ;; Don't let disp-table.el overwrite standard-display-table:
    (let ((standard-display-table standard-display-table))
      (setq buffer-display-table (make-display-table))))
;; Make ^H invisible:
(aset buffer-display-table ?\^H [])
