the 1040ES estimated tax payment vouchers appear to require that I list my Social Security number, can or should I put my EIN here instead?
No. Use your SSN.
The EIN is for your retirement plan, which is a separate entity from yourself. It should be given to the broker(s) and bank(s) and anyone else who holds an account for the plan.
If I use my Social, will I have problems with the IRS later with the tax-free money that I'm putting into the i401k?
