We have a request process for O365 Groups and send our own custom email out upon creation.  Is it possible to 'turn-off' the Microsoft generated emails that are automatically created upon group creation?  The emails from Microsoft are somewhat confusing as it promotes things like connectors we have disabled, plus we are already sending our own customized email.

Hi! AFAIK these cant be turned off and are not customizable!

There is a uservoice for this request here:

This was previously possible when creating it via PowerShell: New-UnifiedGroup -SuppressWarmupMessage (see for example the discussion in this thread: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-365-Groups/MC99370-Removing-SuppressWarmupMessage-from...). I believe it's deprecated now though.

Yeah, what I’ve heard too..
From the link Vasili shared is important to notice that what is deprecated is the Warmup Message AKA, the message that is already inside the Group Mailbox, but you can still suppress the welcome message https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/users-and-groups/Set-UnifiedGroup?view=e...
-UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled
and you can delete the message inside the mailbox if you don't like it after creating it.
