Require encrypted public keys

We allow users to use public key authentication to log into servers if
they desire.  However, I want to ensure they do it properly and add
passphrases to the keys they create.  Is there a  way to allow only
passphrase protected public keys to be used for public key

A public key is public. Anyone can know it. I think you mean that you
want their private key on their own machine to be password protected.
No, that is on their own machine. They can do as they wish. There is
nothing in the negotiations between your machine and theirs which has
anything to do with the encryption or not of their private key on their
own system.
