My Nexus 5 recently had some hardware issue and I requested an RMA. The following error comes up when I try to flash the stock recovery system back. Is it okay if I send the Nexus 5 with TWRP installed?

writing 'bootloader'...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it appears the flash memory is bad on your N5. See here. As for whether it's okay to send it with TWRP installed...hmm. I dunno. I don't think an eMMC failure could be caused by installing TWRP so it shouldn't be considered your fault, but they might make you pay for the repair because of it.

Okay, I will post back when I get told about paying for the repair. Thanks.
