It's impossible to set any predefined name in custom project template based on wixproj file, because of this code in WixProjectNode:
This code does not check whether the OutputName project property is already being set, for example with some MSBuild parameter, like $SomeParameter$
but it's said that it initializes the project properties only if they are empty but there is no actual check if property is empty.
Thanks for such a great project! It can be even more amazing!

    protected override void InitializeProjectProperties()
        string projectName = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(this.FileName);
        this.SetProjectProperty(WixProjectFileConstants.OutputName, projectName);
