You can use the PERCENTILE function instead. You can use PERCENTILE(array,.2), PERCENTILE(array,.4), etc.

In which case they are quintiles (if that's what they're called), not quartiles.
=PERCENTILE(B2:B50,5)

I want to get the result like 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 or 5 base on

case   if cell("B2").value is < PERCENTILE(B2:B50 , .2 )
      1
case   if cell("B2").value is < PERCENTILE(B2:B50 , .4 )
      2
case   if cell("B2").value is < PERCENTILE(B2:B50 , .6 )
      3
case   if cell("B2").value is < PERCENTILE(B2:B50 , .8 )
      4
case   if cell("B2").value is < PERCENTILE(B2:B50 , 1 )
      5
Like this?

=IF(B2<PERCENTILE(B2:B50,0.2),1,IF(B2<PERCENTILE(B2:B50,0.4),2,IF(B2<PERCENTILE(B2:B50,0.6),3,IF(B2<PERCENTILE(B2:B50,0.8),4,5))))
