Surprising Reserch Topic questions - Question:How to properly remove URL's from Google's index?

On some of our sites, we now have several thousand pages that dilute our website's keyword density. The website is an MVC site with SEO routing.

If I submit a new sitemap with say only the 2000 or so pages that we want indexed, even though navigating to the diluting pages still works, will Google re-index the site with only those 2000 pages, dropping the superfluous ones?

For example, I want to keep roughly 2000 of the following:

And remove several thousand of the following that have already been indexed.

These pages are not actually "removed" as navigating to these URL's still renders a page. Even though there are potentially hundreds of thousands of pages, I only want say 2000 to be re-indexed and retained. The others removed (without having to do these manually).
