    I think we could not achieve your requirement. With Office custom UI, we could custom ribbon, backstage view. But, we could not custom the FileDialog.

    For a workaround, I suggest you custom backstage view, with the button click event, you could show your own FileDialog without Tools options.

    For more information about Custom backstage view, you could refer the link below:
