I would recommend just rebuilding your droplet from the control panel. Click on your droplet, then on Destroy, In the bottom section, select the default Ubuntu 14.04 image and click Rebuild from image. You will now have a stock Ubuntu 14.04 droplet.

You can then install either the stable version provided by Ubuntu or use a PPA to install a slightly newer version. This tutorial will guide you in this process. Since the node.js one-click keeps up with the latest releases, the copy of node.js is built from source and not easily removable via a package manager.
