OpenVPN adds too much to ping
I have OpenVPN Access Server on AWS Lightsail servers. I see 44ms between myself and server. When I connect to VPN I see much ping sometimes. If I close and reopen VPN connection ping is decreasing or increasing. I see sometimes 40ms, mostly 53ms during ping to OpenVPN Access Server.
From myself to Lightsail: 44ms From Lightsail to myself: 44ms From myself to Lightsail while OpenVPN connected: 44ms (xx.xx.xx.xxx) From myself to OpenVPN Access Server while OpenVPN connected: 53ms (172.27.224.1)

What is the issue here? Is the difference between 44ms and 53ms ping a concern for you? All those numbers look normal to my untrained eye. Are you trying to trace down some other issue and suspecting latency through the VPN?
Sounds like OP's question is about OpenVPN Access Server and doesn't have anything to do with pfSense. I moved the thread to the category for off-topic discussion in case someone does care to answer.
That said, OP should probably seek help from the actual OpenVPN forum or OpenVPN support, not pfSense.
The ping depends on how far the server is from your location. So lets say your in turkey and connect to a server in germany, youre likely to get a good ping but not is you connect to melbourne
