Always tell what LilyPond version you use when asking a question.
I will assume the latest stable version, 2.2.x.

At the end of the section on "Fingering instructions" in the on-line
version of the manual, you will find a link to "Fingering" which
shows a list of all the properties that are set by default.
Among others, you will find the property font-size that can be
set to an even lower number than -5 to get a smaller font:
\override Fingering #'font-size = #-6

Also, you can see that the fingerings are typeset using a special
font (number) so if you want thinner figures you may want to change
also the font-encoding property to text.

However, I'm a bit confused by your request since smaller figures
would be more or less unreadible, in my opinion. The default sizes,
shown at
for example, look fine to me.
