Yes if the oil level is high enough to somehow fill a cylinder then it could cause a hydraulic lock situation and would need to be drained and refilled at the proper level then remove the spark plugs and turn the engine over to pump the oil out of the cylinders then reinstall the plugs and try to restart the engine
