There's four different circuits in the ignition switch. The starter circuit is on a different one than the dash lights, power windows, heater fan. Etc.
Unplug the clutch switch and use a stretched out paper clip to jump the two wires in the connector together. That will verify it's a switch-related problem. You can do the same test by installing the factory jumper wire. That same wiring harness is used in trucks with automatic transmissions. Instead of plugging the connector into the non-existent clutch switch, they plug in a short jumper wire. Be aware though that if you do the jumper or the paper clip, you will be able to crank the engine in gear.
