It is possible to over hydrate yourself....it depends on your age...the function of your heart and the function of your kidneys. Also it depends on what you are drinking...if you are drinking huge amounts of plain water in a short period of time you can put yourself in danger. It is called water intoxication and you will go into seizures.
If you are young and healthy it will be hard to do this unless you deliberately drink huge amounts in a short period of time.
Electrolyte rich fluids are the best fluid for dehydration after you have been exercising in the hot weather. Gatorade is an example of an electrolyte rich fluid.
