When I call my webservice and authenticate user, an authorisation token is set and I can see the token value while debugging. After the token is set when I try to call a method, the method checks for that token but the value for that token is null.

Here is an updated working code as you wanted. also update IsUserValid function with the necessary checking.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
using System.Web.Script.Services;

namespace WebService_CSHARP
{    
    /// <summary>
    /// Soap Header for the Secured Web Service.
    /// Username and Password are required for AuthenticateUser(),
    ///   and AuthenticatedToken is required for everything else.
    /// </summary>
    public class TaxonomyWebServiceHeader : System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHeader
    {
        public string Username;
        public string Password;
        public string AuthenticatedToken;
    }

    /// <summary>
    /// Summary description for EE_TaxonomyService
    /// </summary>
    [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    [System.ComponentModel.ToolboxItem(false)]
    // To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line. 
    [System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService]
    public class EE_TaxonomyService : System.Web.Services.WebService
    {
        public TaxonomyWebServiceHeader SoapHeader;
        
        private bool IsUserValid(string Username, string Password)
        {
            // TODO: Implement Authentication
			// Update this function 
            if (Username == "test" && Password == "test")
            {
                return true;
            }
            else
            {
                return false;
            }            
        }

        private bool IsUserValid(TaxonomyWebServiceHeader SoapHeader)
        {
            if (SoapHeader == null)
                return false;
            return true;
            // Does the token exists in our Cache?
            //if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(SoapHeader.AuthenticatedToken))
            //    return (HttpRuntime.Cache[SoapHeader.AuthenticatedToken] != null);
            //return false;
        }

        [WebMethod]
        [ScriptMethod(ResponseFormat = ResponseFormat.Json)]
        [SoapHeader("SoapHeader")]
        public string GetToken()
        {
            if (SoapHeader == null)
                return "Please provide a Username and Password";
            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(SoapHeader.Username) || string.IsNullOrEmpty(SoapHeader.Password))
                return "Please provide a Username and Password";
            // Are the credentials valid?

            string token = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
            HttpRuntime.Cache.Add(token, SoapHeader.Username, null, System.Web.Caching.Cache.NoAbsoluteExpiration, TimeSpan.FromMinutes(60), System.Web.Caching.CacheItemPriority.NotRemovable, null);
            
            return token;            
        }
