Does a solution of .5 M have a greater amount of solvent than a solution of .6 M?

Assuming equal volume, technically yes. But, the different is negligible.

Molarity = moles of solute / volume of solute. Assuming both have 1 Liter of solution (or whatever equal number), the 0.5M solution would have more solvent then the 0.6M solution.

Not necessarily, it all depends on the volume. Molarity is the raito of the number of moles and the volume of the solution.
