I am not sure about clear requirement here. These are my recommendations at this point.

  1. Return error code (non zero) using exit method from your powershell custom action as below. You can refer msi  error codes https://docs.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/win32/msi/error-codes

    exit(1603)

  2. You can also set property from powershell and use it to exit based on condition checks like sequencing built-in Error type custom action

    set-property -name NEWPROPERTY -value $Value
