I want to deactivate the two factor authentification. But there isn't a button to deactivate it under https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage in the "Password and Security tab". It's on but there is no possibility to set it off.

Have Apple removed the option to turn it off for all users?

You may want to contact Apple about this. Your organization settings could be preventing you from disabling 2FA.

I don't want to derail your thread too much but I work in IT and security is one of my jobs, so have to ask:

Why are you trying to disable 2FA? At least in my experience once you've enabled it and logged in, it mostly stays out of the way unless you log into a new device. And even then it's only a minor inconvenience.

2FA adds so much security for so little inconvenience that it seems like a no brainer to me.
