undo-tree-visualizer-mode comes listed in evil-motion-state-modes, which
apparently takes precedence over evil-emacs-state-modes, so you need to
remove undo-tree-visualizer-mode from there. Try this:

(setq evil-motion-state-modes
      (delq 'undo-tree-visualizer-mode evil-motion-state-modes))
(add-to-list 'evil-emacs-state-modes 'undo-tree-visualizer-mode)
