Is there a way to receive emails for 'successful' backups from the ARM Azure Backup service? I am backing up Azure VMs and have enabled 'Email Notifications' (Critical, Warning, Informational) but I do not receive a backup success notification.

No, at present the service only sends emails for failures and warnings, not successful events.

One thing you could do is feed your backup data into OMS and then have it send the emails. The Azure recovery services analytics for OMS is in preview at the min and involves some manual work, but it would work. See here for the preview.
