Another way to do it would be if you know the IPv6 *prefixes* of the 
cloud site(s) you need to reach via the tunnel.  You could then filter 
out any AAAA responses which are not within those prefixes.

It also occurs to me that what you're asking for sounds quite similar to 
what DNS64 does, but backwards:

* DNS64: if AAAA query has no data then check for A record, and if it 
exists, embed it into AAAA response

* What you want: if AAAA query has data then check for A record, and if 
it exists, change AAAA response to NODATA

But it may not be straightforward to hack the powerdns DNS64 code to 
work that way.
