You can create a observer to the event email_order_set_template_vars_before.

In the observer replace created_at_formatted in transportObject with your custom format

// use __constructor instead
$timezone = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance()
$locale   = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance()

$localeDate = $timezone->date(new \DateTime($order->getCreatedAt()), new \DateTimeZone('UTC')), $locale);

// you can get order and transportObject from observer
// like $observer->getEvent()->getData('order');

$transportObject->setData('created_at_formatted', $localeDate->format('l, d.m.Y'));
