Wouldn't it be stupid if he killed of characters that he build up over along time, just to give some very minor characters power?

Because people won't buy that someone like Tatsuki somehow gets powers and can fight an espada just like that.
Maybe she could fight normal Hollows but if she's immediately strong enough to go toe on toe with an espade, that would just be a joke.
He should just stick to the characters he's got. There is no reason why anyone needs to die.
And not everybody needs crazy spiritual powers. We have enough Shinigami, Human, ex-shinigami/Quincy, Quincy and Vizard that can fight in the finale as it is.
