There's no way to achieve that - as long as you have ftp daemon, anyone can access it via telnet.
Some FTP clients have command line as well, so your users will be able to execute commands, to some extent, and depending on the client. You should rather think of restricted access, and only to trusted persons.

1. Use a ftp-server that has no escape to exit to a shell
2. Give the user '/sbin/nologin' as "shell" (last column in /etc/passwd for this user)
