svnadmin is a command-line executable. I don't know how TortoiseSVN is
packaged, but you do not have to go through svnserve to use svnadmin.
You can either install svnadmin.exe by itself (if possible) or install
the svnserve package, then use only svnadmin.exe. Not knowing which
DLLs are needed to run svnadmin.exe, I can't tell you how much to delete
afterwards, but I would expect that you can leave everything in place.
If TortoiseSVN insists on going through svnserve.exe, you should be able
to delete just that.

It may be better to ask this question on the TortoiseSVN list.
