First draft was taken straight from the IGN wiki and not verified by me. I reccommend that you check there if you want more detailed information about the sets and their upgrade requirements. My google-fu was not strong enough to find any other resource.

Thanks to /u/Zacko_ for Fierce Diety information and /u/Simo_393 for finishing the Ancient list!

I'm missing info on the Amiibo sets, which for the most part can be upgraded. Feel free to share your knowledge, however it seems that materials are in the realm of things that don't just fall in your lap.

Materials that are used to upgrade multiple armor sets: Guts from Bokoblins, Moblins, Hinoxes, and Lynels; Lynel Hoof s; Lizalfos Tails; Fire, Ice and Electric Keese Wings; Anything that falls off of a Dragon

The further down the list you read, the further down the bottle I was. Sorry.
