I am afraid that ABAQUS does not have pre-defined variable called maximum von Mises strain.

You can define the von Mises strain from the deformation gradient and you can determine its maximum principal value, but ABAQUS does not have a function to do this for you. Can can do it yourself using, for example, a UVARM subroutine.
