What I'm looking for is some way to get a wave texture to function similar to a dampened track or a track to constraint. I don't want to have to rotate the actual sphere itself, just the texture to follow an object (in this case, an empty).

You can use another empty with the track constraint and at the sphere's position, then use it in the Texture Coordinate node:

material nodes


wave texture pointing to empty
