I think it is there, but should be +eNumber. Number bigger than default 2053.

case 'e':
	    if (sys_strcmp("c", argv[i]+2) == 0) {
		erts_ets_always_compress = 1;
	    }
	    else {
		/* set maximum number of ets tables */
		arg = get_arg(argv[i]+2, argv[i+1], &i);
		if (( user_requested_db_max_tabs = atoi(arg) ) < 0) {
		    erts_fprintf(stderr, "bad maximum number of ets tables %s\n", arg);
		    erts_usage();
		}
		VERBOSE(DEBUG_SYSTEM,
			("using maximum number of ets tables %d\n",
			 user_requested_db_max_tabs));
	    }
	    break;
