Not really - not from Filezilla.  

The case sensitivity of files is controlled by the remote host - the operating system and sometimes how it's disk drive was formatted.

Windows-based servers are case-insensitive so you can't have files named ReadMe.txt and README.TXT like you can on Unix-style computers.

Have you tried explicitly deleting the existing file instead of overwriting it?

Any FTP client should be able to delete a file... or at least request that the server delete the file... the server might say "No" if your login account does not have permission.

But you will have to do that in two steps, delete first, then upload?
