I am afraid that there is no way to delete these files from your friends' Dropbox accounts by hindsight.

The only way to delete those files is when you unshare shared folders, you're asked if you want to keep shared files on others Dropbox accounts.

    And, even so, if they've copied or moved the files somewhere else you'll not be able to delete them.
