You can do that with StaffSymbol's 'thickness property.

 % this is the default value, i do believe:
 \override Staff.StaffSymbol #'thickness = #1

However, Lilypond makes small objects _relatively thicker_ for better
readability (like different character widths for different font sizes for
ComputerModern font, for example -- sorry, i couldn't find better example).

I can believe that an eye, "trained by Finale", will see Lilypond's output as
"far too thick", but Lilypond does that intentionally, for readability's sake.

Probably, this behavior may be adjusted *for all* grobs, not StaffSymbol only,
but i don't know whether it is possible or not (i'd say it should be, but i am
not sure).
