Is it possible to remove the username (or make it show email instead of username) displayed under the Display Name when beginning a chat with a user?

No, not a way to customize Teams at that level. However you can suggest the change on uservoice.

Do you know if there's any reasoning documented anywhere as to why they chose to display username over email or nothing?

No probably not other than internal design documents, that's a pretty minor UI item.
