    The audio file for the adjective "cleanly" is the same as that for the adverb "cleanly".

    However, the two words are not pronounced the same.

    Adverb: /ˈkliːnli/

    Adjective: /ˈklɛnli/

    Auch die Stilebene ist offensichtlich eine andere: beim Adjektiv ist im lexico-Eintrag archaic vermerkt.

    I see that Merriam-Webster doesn't mark the adjective as archaic; on the other hand, some online dictionaries don't seem to list it at all. I would say it's fairly rare nowadays in BE.

    Has it an archaic ring to it when you hear "cleanly woman"?

    Yes. Unlike the noun "cleanliness", which is in common use.
