Can anything other than Crohn's Disease cause ulcer(s) in the ileum?

In brief: Yes.

Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, opportunistic infections and TB can do this, but Crohn's is a good first guess.

In brief: Not commonly

I suppose bacterial overgrowth might, but that's not anywhere near as common as Crohn's.
I suppose inflammatory bowel disease overlaps it slightly as do vascular autoimmune diseases, but these would not commonly affect ileium and would have other symptoms that would overshadow the ileium!

In brief: Ulcers in TI

Non steroidal inflammattory drugs such as motrin often do.
Rarely TB, yersinia or lymphoma.
