texi2pdf and texi2dvi which are in the texinfo debian package require a 'tex' binary program to run.

I'd prefer to not have to install all of texlive just to get it.

Is there any tex binary in the standalone lmtx system?

If not are there any recommendations to install it?

Regrettably, you need a bunch of the things that will be in texlive in
order to use it.

Tex, but no macro collections?  Oops, no good.

Tex, but no font definitions?  Oops, no good.

I expect the list of "Tex, but no <foo>?  Oops, no good" items continues
from there.  Macro collections and fonts leap to mind immediately, but I'm
sure that's not all :-(

There may be something smaller than texlive; it looks like MiKTeX might be
a possibility.

Depending on your motivation, you can simply run TexLive off a DVD or USB without system integration.
This may be useful if you are only doing one offs, and don’t want to store all this on your local system
All the time.
