Yes, the 580EX II will work with the Rebel T1i, but, is probably overkill.

Look at the Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash instead.

The 430EX II has a guide number of 43 meters/141 feet @ ISO 100, compare that to Nikons top of the line SB900 flash which has a guide number of 40 meters / 131 feet @ ISO 100. Unless there is a specific reason you need the 58 meter guide number of the 580EX, like night football, just go with the 430EX II.
