The problem is your partition table, not ext4. You'll need to backup, format, and restore to convert from MBR to GPT.

There is no way to convert in place a non ZFS file system to a ZFS one. You need to backup the former, create the pool and restore your data. It is also unclear how you want to create a RAIDZ pool with only two 4TB disks. You can only create a mirror or a stripe with two devices.
