Firstly, you cannot delete from the left-hand side of this dialog.

 

Once the style exists in the Materials.mtl file you must open the Materials.mtl file into Solid Edge and delete the style from that file.  Yes Materials.mtl is actually a Solid Edge .par file renamed to .mtl.

so what i have to do is, rename the materials.mtl to materials.par, do my cleaning, save, and rename back to materials.mtl?

Just browse to the folder containing  the Materials.mtl file and change the File Type filter to "All documents".
