Inasmuch as high dynamic range produces photos where the sky doesn't get overexposed into white, and darker ranges don't fall to solid black, and the darker/brighter regions don't have noise.... NO, you can't have too much dynamic range.

As far as shooting photos with way too much contrast, where the eye has to take in darks and lights... yes, you could produce a worse photo.
