Hmmm, if the engine ran fine prior to you doing the valve adjustment, I'm guessing your valves are timed, correctly, so there shouldn't be any valve train encounters of the third kind occurring. Are you able to turn the crank nut the opposite direction, a little, from the way you were trying to turn it? If you can, turn it a bit until it wants to stop. Without trying to force it, does it just not want to go any further after a certain point? I'm just afraid the valves are touching the pistons, for some reason...Or maybe you just have great compression!

Yes, you can remove the spark plugs to turn the engine over fairly easily by hand. Once you remove them, you can test for any contact, much easier, but I doubt this is happening.
