Air is trapped in eggs when they are beaten, so if the eggs in waffle batter are beaten too much, there will be too much air in the batter and it will not rise properly in the waffle iron. Too much beating also forms gluten in the batter, resulting in tough, chewy waffles.

They get dry and become difficult to fold into other foods. Depending how overbeaten they are, the foam might even break down.

Liquid egg whites beat to stiffen?

If you're asking if you can whip egg white products like Egg Beaters, then the answer is yes, you can. I've done it myself more than once in the past. If you are asking how to beat them, the easiest way is to start with everything cold. Cold egg whites, put the whisk (or the beaters from a hand held mixer) and the bowl, everything that touches the eggs goes in the refrigerator to get them as cold as possible. That will make them much easier to beat to stiff peaks.
