Is Intel driving AMD off the market? On my distributor's website, I have 164 different LGA 775 boards, and 11 AM2 and 38 AM2+ boards. I know that Intel has had an edge for a while, but are they actually throwing out AMD?

Not at all. Intel doesn't want AMD to fail and will do measures to prevent it from occurring. Similar to what happened when Microsoft bailed Apple out a while back.
AMD is doing extremely poor financially, posting it's 4 consecutive loss. At some point AMD will come back, you need to keep in mind that there are many other products AMD makes, then just desktop CPUs.

AMD recently heavily diversified and they took a big hit for it, they also don't make chipsets for motherboards quite so prolifically as Intel as its not so important to the performance of AMD chips as they build in allot of functions that in Intel are located on the motherboard. Intel release chipsets like candy you get a new one every 3 months sometimes, AMD will get a new major chipset change once a year give or take so you have more boards about.

Intel won't drive AMD out the market, they actually do a fair bit of business, Intel uses the crossfire system from AMD in all its motherboards for example.
