PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Spiritomb's defense and special defense base stats are 108. On the pokedex page, it said it was "bound together by 108 spirits". Was this supposed to be a little easter egg hidden by GF?

It is most likely done purposely.

Its Diamond, HeartGold, and SoulSilver Pokédex entries states that it was formed from 108 spirits. Spiritomb's number in the Sinnoh Pokédex is 108, its Defense and Special Defense base values are 108, and it weighs exactly 108.0 kilograms. All this is based on the number of temptations a person must overcome to reach Nirvana in Buddhism.
