You need to write a custom ADM(X) template for this. What the predefined
templates do is go to [HKCU]\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC\{MMC snapin
GUID} and set the "Restrict_Run" key to either 0 (enabled) or 1 (disabled).

All you need to know is the GUID of the SMS console and edit the predefined
MMCSnapin.ADMX, better yet create a custom ADMX and insert a new section
just like you see it built-in for the other mmc snap-ins.
