I have an issue in Moto G 2nd Gen running Lollipop. It shown a stroke/outline on the text for the entire display. I thought it may or may not be an OS issue.

I tried searching this option in Settings to change the style, but I didn't find anything about it.

Is it possible to turn this off?

Here with I've attached the screenshot, what the difficulties I faced.

You've (accidentally) turned on "high contrast text" accessibility option, an experimental feature on Lollipop. From Google official support,

High contrast text

This information applies only to devices running Android 5.0 and higher.

High contrast makes text easier to read on your device. This feature fixes the text color as either black or white, depending on the original text color.

To enable or disable high contrast text, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility.
  2. Select High contrast text.

High-contrast text is currently an experimental feature, so it might not work correctly everywhere on your device.
