I assume you mean that the user's login shell is git-shell.

You can disable interactive logins by removing the
~/git-shell-commands/ directory.  Unfortunately that doesn't let you
customize the message.  Perhaps it would make sense to teach shell.c
to look for a

                greeting = 'Hi %(username)! You've successfully authenticated, 
but I do not provide interactive shell access.'

setting in git's config file.  What do you think?
