Is there a way to limit the number of mobile devices a user has their email configured on?  If yes, can this setting be different for different categories of users?

You can manually go through and query the devices that have connected and remove devices

There is a default limit of 10 this is a system setting and can't be manipulated on a per user basis

Set-ThrottlingPolicy Default* -EASMaxDevices 1

You can create a different throttling policy and apply the new policy to different/specific users.

Take a look at this.  I have never tried to decrease the number of devices - you could try that and see if it works.

yes, you can use throttling policy

Set-ThrottlingPolicy <Default EAS Policy> -EASMaxDevices 5

Otherwise you can user Exchange 2010 new features called ABQ (Allow\Block\Quarantine) list for EAS service
