Is it grammatically correct?
He was stamped by an elephant.

A better word to use is trampled. When someone gets killed by an elephant, it's usually described as someone who was trampled to death. Though stomped and trampled kind of mean the same thing, elephants are known to trample people.
He was trampled by an elephant.

No. Perhaps you mean stomped on, not stamped. With that change, it would be correct.

"He was stamped by an elephant." should have "stamped" corrected to "stomped on": "He was stomped on by an elephant."

No, I believe you are looking for 'stomped,' unless of course the elephant is holding a job at a country's customs and entry point. Then he is issuing visa stamps and the context would make the sentence correct. =_)
