webOS devices continue to function without these items. There are alternative app stores and manual back up is possible, though obviously less convenient.
However, when a device is reset or a webOS doctor is used to re-install the operating system, it acts like a new device and it's first function is to enable you to set up a Palm profile or login to an existing profile. To so this, it attempts to contact the servers at HP. When there is no response, it shows an error - the error you are seeing.
There is a program called device tool that enables this activation process to be bypassed on older devices, but to work on a Touchpad, an additional file needs to be added to it. This item can be extracted from the webOS doctor for your device. Device tool & the webOS doctors were previously available from... the HP servers! Now you must find them at the internet archive. This is a free service reliant on donations, so consider donating if it is useful to you.
Parts of the HP servers remain accessible. Device tool is here:

webOS doctors listing:
If not on ATT, you most likely want wifi only, version 3.0.5.
Armed with these files, you can now follow the instructions in this thread:
HP TP Server Error
EDIT: Note that with a webOS 1.x phone, device tool works without modification & webOS2.x phones are easily bypassed by inputting a code.
Note that the reset means you have lost your palm profile data and you will need to re-login to other cloud accounts - you've possibly also lost your apps. This article may be useful to set up again:

The truth is I did the same and didn't find out myself until I decided to do a wipe, at which point I couldn't connect anymore. Kinda scary at first since the phone is essentially useless unless you can sign in (probably one of the worst pain points of the webOS design from the start!)
