Triac based fan regulators are readily available in the shops.

Google "ac fan speed controller". There are lots of hits.

You cannot use a standard AC light dimmer because of the voltage / current phase difference in an inductive load.

Don't know what level of performance you are looking for, but look to the TT guys for cheap techniques: make a Wien Bridge oscillator with a power opamp and use a stepup transformer at the output to step up the voltage to 220VAC.
