Confirmed using the described steps.

This is an omission in org-clock-sum.
When parsing clock lines (which org-clock-sum considers as any line
starting from word CLOCK:), org-clock-sum calls org-parse-time-string.
The latter throws the error you are seeing.

The problem have been present at lest since Org 9.1.9.
An easy fix would be catching the error and ignoring erroneous headline.
An alternative could be also throwing a warning or more informative
Another alternative could be using org-element and only parsing real
clock objects + adding org-lint checker for malformed clock lines.
org-lint checker will be useful in any case though.

I do not consider this as a pressing issue, so I am just leaving the
possible solutions above. And patches are welcome :)
