Having the same issue here and do not really want to change the ACF field to a post field. As a last case scenario, you could create a page that then redirects to the custom post archive page.
In my scenario, I was creating a directory page listing all of the common types of pages I’d want to be linking to. Therefore the custom post type archive page was one of them.
