    A short answer, SAML 2.0 is not supported in the SharePoint 2019.

    There are three supported authentication types and methods in the SharePoint 2019.

    1.Windows authentication

    2.Forms-based authentication

    3.SAML token-based authentication

    According to this Microsoft article, for the third authentication type - SAML token-based authentication,

    SAML token-based authentication in SharePoint Server uses the SAML 1.1 protocol and the WS-Federation Passive Requestor Profile (WS-F PRP). It requires coordination with administrators of a claims-based environment, whether it is your own internal environment or a partner environment. If you use Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0, you have a SAML token-based authentication environment. A SAML token-based authentication environment includes an identity provider security token service (IP-STS). The IP-STS issues SAML tokens on behalf of users whose accounts are included in the associated authentication provider. Tokens can include any number of claims about a user, such as a user name and the groups to which the user belongs. An AD FS 2.0 server is an example of an IP-STS.

    You can implement federated authentication using Azure AD

    And you can setup SAML 2.0 with Azure AD

    And it mentioned it should work with 2013 or newer.

    So I think it should work but may be tricky.
