We have just started testing MS Teams and people are creating all sorts of 'Teams' as groups which in turn is creating a ton of SharePoint Sites.  We do not want this for each and every group these people are creating.  It has definitely created a issue.

No, you cant Choice what workloads will be provisioned ina group in that way! What you need to do is restrict group creation and limit that to a certain group of users.
To this you can also create a custom teams creation workflow which you can govern your way
