I suspect the issue here is that the validated method’s run method is executed on the client and the server. However, Accounts.findUserByEmail is only available on the server. You could do something like:

...
run(newUser) {
  if (Meteor.isServer) {
    console.log(Accounts);
    const existUser = Accounts.findUserByEmail(newUser.email);
    if (existUser) {
      return {
        "error": "User already uses this email to register"
      }
    }
  }
...
