No. Citizens of the European Union do not get passport stamps when they enter other European Union countries.

Because of this, it is extremely unlikely that anyone would tell you that you need such a stamp for your application. Where did you get this information?

As an EU citizen, in fact, you can apply for a residence certificate and NIE at the same time, although the residence certificate is not required. For a discussion, see http://spain.angloinfo.com/moving/residency/nie-the-application/ and http://spain.angloinfo.com/moving/residency/.
