First of all, it's important to read the power in question carefully. The power specifies that the umber hulk shifts 5 squares. The number of squares pulled is unspecified.
There are three different ways for a forced movement power to delineate what restrictions apply to it. It can either have a specific distance, a destination square or it can have both.*
Rules Compendium, pg 212 (my emphasis):
Distance, Specific Destination, or Both: The power or effect that produces forced movement specifies a distance in squares, a specified destination square or both for the movement.
When a distance is specified, it is a maximum; the creature or effect producing the forced movement can move its target up to that number of squares (or none at all). For instance, a character's power might say, "You slide the target 4 squares (or "up to 4 squares"); both mean the character can move the target up to 4 squares or not move it at all.
When a destination is specified, it is absolute; the creature or effect must either move the target to that destination or not move it at all. Often a destination is combined with a distance, which means that the target can be moved to the destination only if it is no farther away than the specified distance. For instance, a character's power might say, "You slide the target up to 5 squares to a square adjacent to you (or 5 squares to a square adjacent to you)," both of which mean the character can move the target 5 squares but only if the move ends in a square adjacent to that character.
Second of all, reading and properly understanding Stand Your Ground is important. If a power that specifies that it "pushes 6" is used against a dwarf with Stand Your Ground, it instead reads as "pushes 5". (For more on this, read How does Come and Get it work with forced movement reduction.)
Reducing an unspecified distance by 1 does not make it specified. The destination square remains absolute. Hence, Stand Your Ground cannot reduce the pull from this umber hulk tunneler power.
