Try mounting your EFI System Partition (ESP) and removing the EFI/ubuntu directory from that partition. Then boot a Linux emergency system in EFI mode and use efibootmgr to remove the Ubuntu entry. For instance:

# efibootmgr 
Timeout: 10 seconds
BootOrder: 0000,0008,0006,0007
Boot0000* ubuntu
Boot0006* Hard Drive
Boot0007* CD/DVD Drive
Boot0008* INTERNAL EFI SHELL: ST32000542AS
# efibootmgr -b 0 -B

You'll need to modify the value passed to -b based on the initial efibootmgr output.
