The closest thing I have seen is portsentry.
However, portsentry is a different beast. I don't think it "knows" about
attempts to log in via ssh.
In other words ... I don't think portsentry can say "Hey!! Wait a sec.
There are no users such as those. In fact, this server doesn't allow
logins from ANYONE except X Y and Z via ssh keys .... Okay, time to
block this bonehead ....."
