Summary of the bug:
How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i input -c:v hevc_videotoolbox output.mp4
produces file with Codec ID(FourCC) hev1 which is unplayable in default Quicktime player on macOS 10.13.
Changing Codec ID to hvc1 in hex editor fixes the issue.
Can you please output by default hevc files with Codec ID hvc1?

Use this to set the codec tag

ffmpeg -i input -c:v hevc_videotoolbox -tag:v hvc1 output.mp4

Both hev1 and hvc1 are perfectly valid tags for HEVC according to the specification, it is impossible to know which one you would prefer without telling ffmpeg.
