A puncture on tubeless can be repaired but the puncture needs to be in the middle few inches of the tread. The repair has to be a mushroom inserted from the inside and vulcanized.
You have to work out whether it's worth the cost (30ish) over the mileage left in that tyre compared to the cost of just fitting a new one.
