I would have done the same.

Passing 4 diamonds was the only winning move. No game was makeable. 30 high card points between partner and I. No game anywhere. A diamond game is ruined by the bad split. This despite the enemy not having the Ace or king of their 11 card suit.
If I have worked out the hands correctly (West six spades, K10xx hearts and three clubs), then 4H makes.
