He and I dated over the summer and I said in the very beginning that I didn't want anything committed. Things got a bit more serious, which I was okay with, but I thought he knew we still weren't going to be fully "together". He's just been super clingy and I've been drifting away because of it. Last night I told him I wanted to end things because I just wasn't in the place to be in a relationship, like I'd said in the beginning.
Now he is setting ultimatums like saying he won't talk to me ever if we break up. I don't really know what to do. I'd like to hang out with him normally, but I don't think that's possible. We're continuing the conversation later. How do I let him down easily?

At this stage, there's little point trying to let him down easily since he's getting weird. Just be brief and firm, and then leave. Don't waste your time trying to keep him as a friend, it's not worth it.0

He is making his wants loud and clear. This is sort of a "take" it or "leave" it deal.
Since your needs do not match up with his , you have no other option than to end things with him.
I know you still want a piece of him , but you have to understand you both aren't at the same level. This will continue to cause conflict if you do not choose. It will continue to be a reoccurring issue. You have to let him go , as hard as it may be.
At that point , there's nothing more to be said.
Wish him the best of luck with his life and move on.0
