Clusters are used to control when and where text is shown between groups of maps (like when starting Dead Simple). You don't absolutely need them unless you want to have text intermissions.

 

If you don't use clusters, you will encounter an issue where you don't get the "entering (next map)" screen during the between map stats screens. It can be avoided by setting all maps to the same cluster.

You also need clusters when using hubs, i.e. when the player is going back and forth between some maps and you need the engine to remember the state of previously visited maps.
