Is this true: the goal of the Debian Cloud Team is to make roughly equievalent
Debian Cloud Images for the various cloud providers so that
Debian users have a consistent (to the degree possible) experience with
Debian in each cloud?

If true, is it also true for Debian LTS Cloud Images?  I can accept that
it might not be, especially if the Debian Cloud Team _isn't_ taking
accountability for these LTS images (regardless of who is responsible
for the work: Credative for Azure, etc.).

That's fair.

This, combined with the per-provider approach, suggests that the Debian
Cloud Team isn't accountable for the LTS images? Which would then lead
to a question about how to publish the LTS images.
