Yes, you can still e-file even though you contributed more than $18,500 to your 401(k).  However, there is currently an issue within TurboTax preventing e-filing when you have an excess contribution.  An update to fix the issue is expected to be released around 4/5/2019.  You can check out this TurboTax FAQ for more information: Excess 401(k) Contribution Preventing E-filing.

Be sure to sign up for updates to be alerted as soon as there is a solution.  If you do not want to wait for an update, you have the option to paper file your tax returns as this is only an e-filing issue.

If you haven't done so already, use the steps in this answer to include your excess contribution as wages on your 2018 Tax Return:  What to do if you have an excess contribution to a 401(k).
