Do ions with a greater electronegativity difference have more polarizability? So, NaF bonded, there would be more distortion due to the F atom having a much higher electronegativity than Na, creating an unequal electron distribution, correct?

Yes polarizing power is only for ions because it is a measure of the ability of one ion to polarize another ion or atom.
