Can I divide my measured preboil gravity by the estimated preboil gravity to get brewhouse efficiency?

No, because the estimated preboil gravity is presumably also being calculated with reference to a predicted efficiency. But, assuming your volumes are all correct, you can do:

( (actual preboil gravity) / (predicted preboil gravity) ) * (predicted efficiency) = actual efficiency
