  You could theoretically hook the "new post" admin page header (and 
save post to be safe), check whether the current user already has a post 
of that post type, and redirect / wp_die or otherwise "handle" an event 
where they do.

The action hooks to look for are "load-post-new.php" and "save_post".

Just a pointer in the general direction.
