Do you need Helm installed to use Helmcharts via Pulumi?

As far as I can remember me using it once, yes, because Pulumi uses it via
helm template
to “instantiate” the chart to YAML and convert that to Pulumi resources.

I don’t use it anymore. Everything is written in Pulumi code for us.

I convert via
helm template
, followed by https://www.pulumi.com/kube2pulumi/ to have a baseline of Pulumi code from which I refactor.

we use a lot of community helm charts which i do not want to maintain myself after conversion.

You are not required to have helm installed. The pulumi kubernetes provider uses the helm sdk/lib under the hood to template out the chart. https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-kubernetes/blob/master/provider/pkg/provider/invoke_helm_template.go
