I don't think so.
Musk's mission is to replace as many ICE powered cars by EV's as possible, even if those are not Teslas. Blocking the sale of supercaps does not advance that goal.
He bought Maxwell to have access to their technology, not to end their business.

Well he made 18650's burst out the seams in supply and a couple other form factors. I think this will be a good thing. Plus salvage tesla battery packs per battery are usually unbelievable cheap per cell vs new. Should be good stuff.
