The basic difference between Tube/Type and Tubeless tyres is Inner layer of rubber.
In case of tubeless it is made of butyl rubber and in other case it is made of natural rubber.
in case of butyl rubber air retention capabilities are more.

If in case tube type tyre is used as tubeless :
there are frequent air losses.
air escapes trough inner layer and corodes steel wires
tyre performance goes down in longer run.
