Not sure that you can remove these buttons from the message header in Outlook 2013.
The Reply, Reply All and Forward buttons cannot be removed from the message header in Outlook 2013. You may however minimize the bar on which these buttons appear. To do so follow these steps.

1) In the reading pane just above the scroll bar you will see an up-arrow (chevron). Click on the chevron to minimize of the message header, as shown in the screenshot below.

2) In case you see a down-arrow button instead of an up-arrow button then the message header is already minimized.

You can remove Respond from the Ribbon but that affects ALL Outlook.

You cannot just remove from the Reading Pane because that is no more than a sub-window within the main Outlook Home frame.
