Unfortunately SSMS does not provide filtering option at this level. You could use simple SQL query:

FROM [linked_server].[database_name].sys.tables
WHERE [name] LIKE 'table_name'
  AND [schema_id] = SCHEMA_ID('dbo');

There is GUI option though not by using filtering:

View -> Object Explorer Details (F7) and search box

As you can see filter icon is inactive but Search is working.
