I intend to use the existing wires that go to my Hellas so I can continue to use the OEM light switch and dash indicator.

Re. if the relay is needed, it is if you want to use a switched source. If you just want to turn them on/off whenever, then no, a relay isn't necessary as you could just tie straight to the battery (provided your switch can handle the current). LED really doesn't play into it unless you want to attempt something like tapping into the headlight wiring as your power source and your trigger input.
