Is there a way to fit table cells to their content? (InDesign)

  • You could set table height to a very low value and set it as the lowest value instead of strict. This automatically changes the table cells' height to its content.

You would need to set all cells to "At least" and do width and height size as 1mm.

From personal experience I would advise against it as you could end with cell in the middle of a table with a lot of text. So the middle Column and Row would be large while other ones could be very thin.
