num:nil causes unnumbered sections in latex (\section*{...})  which are
not entered into the .toc file (that's a latex limitation, not an
org-mode one), so the latex exporter wants both num: and toc: to be
enabled before it produces a table of contents.

I think the only way to get a TOC is to set num:t. You can probably
rewrite a chunk of latex code so that unnumbered sections etc end up in
the .toc file, but I think it would be a fairly major undertaking.
