Although your use of "inciting" in your question (and in one of your comments so far) implies that you view "indecision" as necessarily/always a bad thing to be avoided, I'll nevertheless risk the negative consequences of offering my opinion (and answer based thereon) that sometimes "indecision" is a good thing, especially when it causes one to think and reflect further before taking a dubious course of action or formulating a questionable opinion or "answer".
Your interesting question makes me think of two different teaching/learning styles. On the one hand, there's the "sage on the stage," who always gives the decisive, non-optional "answer" (Yes, it will be on the exam!), and then there's the "guide on the side," who rarely provides the "answer," but instead gives multiple options to think about as the Students are guided to formulate their own "answers." (I had mostly "sages on the stages," most of whom were truly awe-inspiring "sages" in every sense of the word, and personally, I prefer that style of teaching).
Anyway, in this positive, "guide on the side" sense of "inciting indecision," I imagine that the "too helpful" counselor described in your question had the intention of "provoking thought" by "inciting [your] indecision": = "thought-provoking."
(and regardless of the merits of my answer, feel free to consider "provoking indecision" as perhaps a suitable replacement for "inciting indecision" in your question)
