So what you have in column V is not text, then, but a proper time 
value, suitably formatted?

As given in your formula, you are trying to match a text string - 
"2:00 PM" - with numerical time values, which happen to be formatted 
to look the same.

Yes - in that you need to compare like with like.  Probably the 
simplest way is to express the time in your SUMPRODUCT() function as 
TIMEVALUE("2:00 PM").  Alternatively  you could use TIME(14;0;0).

I trust this helps.
