There is no way to make it only use TMT. You can make it only use WMC (which is what you want - so that is good).
Here you go, a little registry edit:
To remove the choice and always use WMC to play DVDs, I created a .reg file. It removes the registry key which tells Windows there is more than one player available and that it should ask you which you want to use.
Just copy the lines and paste them into a notepad text file. After saving the text file, rename the extension to .reg (instead of .txt) and double click the file. Windows will ask if you really want to do this, say yes, and Windows will say it is done.
I am not sure if you have to redo this after each TMT update. I keep the .reg file around for when I reinstall or such. Also, take note I am using Windows 7 32bit. I do not know if it is different for 64 bit, but my guess is they are both the same. The item in the brackets is all one line, it may break apart here due to the length of it. The - just inside the bracket means "remove this registry entry".

EDIT: attached the .reg file in zipped format
