You can’t automatically delete the music files removed from iTunes app however you can achieve something similar as follows:

  1. change the location of the iTunes library (move to a new folder): iTunes preferences > Advanced > move to new location or change
  2. tick the following check boxes
    1. keep iTunes media folder organised
    2. copy files to iTunes media folder
  3. press OK
  4. file > library > organise library > consolidate files

iTunes should now copy only relevant files.

Last but not least, delete the entire old folder (after having all the relevant files and folders transferred to the new location)
