In your group policy there is a setting under User config, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, called Hide specified Control panel items.

If you enable it and type in Administrative Tools
It will not only remove it from the start menu but also hide it in control panel.

Remember to run gpupdate /force to apply the policy immediately after setting it.

Hope this helps
