You may drop (not install) cryptsetup binary but you have to build and 
install libcryptsetup to have a working veritysetup. Yes.

Cryptsetup doesn't require lvm2 package. Also it doesn't depend on any 
lvm2 metadata. But libcryptsetup does depend on libdevmapper, low level 
library for setting up kernel device-mapper devices (dm-crypt, 
dm-verity, ...). Usually libdevmapper is standalone library but 
sometimes it's distributed together with lvm2 package. Depends what 
distribution you use.
