The Oxford English Language Dictionary lists about 500,000 words and it is estimated that there are a further 500,000 scientific and technical terms that have not been catalogued.

Given that the letter 'e' is the most commonly used letter in English spellings, doubtless there are hundreds of thousands of words in the English language that have the letter 'e' in them.

Apart from this very rough indication, we regret that we have been unable to identify any source that would provide a more verifiable and precise answer to this interesting question.
