As Marty notes, current Nikon teleconverters will not allow the 18-300mm to mount, and there's a real risk of elements hitting each other if it could mount.

Kenko is the usual alternative source of teleconverters, but Kenko does not recommend them for zoom lenses that have a range starting under 50 mm.

So I think it's best to assume you can not use a teleconverter with this lens.
