I'm wondering, is there a way to open all my *.[c] files on different tabs, but split the window with the corresponding *.[h] file from the command line?

I can split one file as: vim -O file1.c file1.h

or in multiple tabs as: vim -p *.[ch] but I can't split them accordingly

Try this:

vim -p *.c -c "tabdo split %:r.h"
