I have a couple of indeterminate tomato plants that are taking over my growbeds, they are almost 6 feet height.
Is it possible to cut them down or prune them to control their growth?

Yes, you can prune them. Pruning is best done early in the day when plants are turgid but dry. Pruning early in the day allows the wound to dry sufficiently during the day making it less susceptible to decay organisms. It is best not to prune during cloudy periods because drying of the wounds is not optimal.
