Technical details:

IE tries to compare the type of the input field to "HIDDEN", to see if it
should be rendered. When there is no type string, a null-pointer is used.

mshtml.dll calls shlwapi.dll#158 @ 0x636f0037 with a pointer to a static
unicode string "HIDDEN" and a null-pointer.
shlwapi.dll#158 does a case-insensitive comparison of two unicode strings:
it reads from address 0x0 because of the null-pointer and thus causes an
exception.
This is not exploitable, other then a DoS because there is no memory mapped
@ 0x0 and even if you could load something there, you could only compare it
to "HIDDEN" which gets you nowhere.
