Hi Oliver, 
Greetings from Syncfusion support. 
Yes, possible. we can achieve your requirement by customize the li elements of the timepicker popup in the DateTimePicker with help of open event as mentioned in the below code example. 
  public startTimestart = "12:00 AM"; 
  public startTimeend = "8:00 AM"; 
  public endTimestart = "8:30 PM"; 
  public onOpen(args) { 
        if ((<any>this.myDate).popupObject) { 
            let elementCollection: any = (<any>this.myDate).popupObject.element.querySelectorAll(".e-datetimepicker.e-popup .e-list-parent.e-ul li"); 
      let flag: boolean = false; 
      for (var i = 0; i < elementCollection.length; i++) { 
                    let value:string = elementCollection[i].getAttribute('data-value'); 
        if (this.startTimestart === value || this.startTimeend === value || this.endTimestart === value) { // Check the component value with timepicker li element value 
                    flag = !flag; 
        if (flag) { 
Please check the sample and get back to us, if you require any further assistance on this.

The above code does not work in my Angular application.  The following code in onOpen is always false:  if ((<any>this.myDate).popupObject)

How would I be able to remove unwanted time values from the datetimepicker time dropdown?

Hi Derick, 
Thanks for your update.  
Based on your shared information, we suspect that you have used our previous updated code example in your angular CLI application. We cannot replicate the reported issue from our end in our angular CLI application. We suggest you handle the type conversion when access the private instance method. 
We have created the sample with angular CLI application. Please find the sample here: https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/directtrac/general/ze/DateTimePIckerTimeRange-1677032377
