I would love to know the answer, too!
Since I'm not getting any helpful replies, I'm going to submit this question as a Technical Support Incident. Will post the answere here.

Ok, turns out I needed to contact the iTunes Connect Team instead of Developer Technical Support (DTS).
Anyways, here is the official answer from Apple:
"We want to confirm for you that you will need a version of your app that has passed the review process and been approved by our App Review team prior to being able to delete this app. [...] We have taken your request to delete apps without approved versions as feedback for a future enhancement of iTunes Connect".
I did not realise it was nearly impossible to delete apps before I added a few when playing around with things. Now I have 5 apps that just sits there in the "Prepare for submission" state.
You mentioned you contacted the "iTunes Connect Team" ? How does one go about to contact them ?
Yea, can you give us an email address or soemthing? The Contact Us link doesn't actually involve contacting them. Stuff like this really makes me enjoy working with you Apple.
On August 8th 2015, I filed the following iTunes Connect Bug (#22201501) through https://bugreport.apple.com:
"It is currently impossible to delete an app that does not have any approved builds from iTunes Connect. I am suggesting to add a new option/feature to iTunes connect that would enable me to do this."
One year later, on August 11th 2016, I received the following reply from Apple Developer Relations:
Thank you for your feedback. At this time there are no plans to address this.
