Resolve "Failed network element creation leads to the return of false error messages"

Typos in combination with copy paste resulted in the return of faulty error messages after cleaning up plugins in the addMne method of controller/northbound/server/networkelement.go.


The clean up of plugins after something went wrong while creating a managed network element, has been moved into a defer function. So if an error is thrown and a plugin has already been created and started, the defer function will stop the plugin and remove the corresponding files.
