When a diesel engine runs out of fuel, air would be trapped in the fuel system and bleeding has to be performed to get it started again.

You need to at least bleed the fuel filter and crank the engine till it starts. A weak battery is not good and since you would need to be cranking for prolonged periods, the starter should be allowed to rest, failing which you could damage it.
