Will there be any ego problems when founding CEO ( not necessarily
CEO - any person who founded the company and now running it) has low
educational qualification than his new employees?
It depends on person to person. This one is from my personal experience - I started my career with a firm where my boss is little lower than my educational background but I really neglected it and just try to push my best efforts into my work and for better prospects I followed these lines -
try try till you succeed however another employee who joined but keep pointing the same what you mentioned in your concern still struggling in the same company due to his attitude.
What to do to avoid such ego problems? If those occurred how to solve
For CEO - try to set an example and prove yourself.
For employee- try and learn to neglect such things because these things finally going to stuck your career path.
I always get the example of Dell founder, then Mr. Gates both of them

These people set examples and were very clear with the thoughts and implementation. Same punch line -
try try till you succeed followed by these people :)
In my case I will be hiring the first person for my company. Should I
ask him in advance that if he is ok working with low educational
Just let him know what exactly you are willing to transform show him a better future with rock solid ideas and show your concern and care towards him. If you convince him with the ideas and your work transformation is on the right path with what you told him during the interview process, I believe NO employee will ever points you :)
