We're not able to add Teams to all of our existing O365 Groups
Thanks for your feedback! Can you please provide more information? We currently support creating teams from a private O365 group in the “Create team” dialog as long as you’re an admin, so if this isn’t working for you, would love to get more details so we can troubleshoot. Thanks!

@Angela There is a case where I have created a group and when Teams launched I created a team with the same name, this created two groups with identical names. I deleted the new group, but when trying to create team from existing groups the old group does not show up as an option.
While I deleted the new group, the connected team remain in a semi broken state. It lets me chat, but not change name or access any files.
When I try to do this, only 4 groups show up. I am an owner of many more, however, they don't show. Any ideas?
You have to be an owner of the O365 group. In the Admin Center, go to Groups, find the group, edit Owner and add yourself
I have the same issue. I can't see any way to create a Team from an existing private group.
I am the admin, and when I go to Create Team, I get a dialog box for Title and Description (no option to use an existing group). The next screen is again the plain add members box, where I can add individuals.
The very first time I logged in and Teams was setting up, it prompted me with the option to use a group (just one out of the many I am a member of, it didn't show the others). I've never seen that option again. There appears to be no where to link up to existing Groups in either the desktop or web client. But good start, this is a neat program...

I'm not sure what else to give you other than some of my existing O365 groups show up when I choose that option and some do not. It does appear that the groups that are available to select are more recently created groups. Feel free to email me directly if you'd like to work with us.
