Is it just as simple as cutting off all the wires that connect to the tone pots?

It can be, but I wouldn't just cut the wires.

On a strat, there will be two wires that you'll want to disconnect. They go from the switch to the tone pots. I'd cut them (very) close to the switch and (very) close to the pot.

Use this diagram to figure out which ones you should cut.
