If the ad requests it, you must have it. If it is the norm though not specifically requested, committees may wonder why you don't have it and assume the worst.

If you think you would not get strong teaching letters from current departmental colleagues (because they would be disappointed you are considering leaving or for other reasons), try to find someone from a conceptually-neighboring discipline who can look at your teaching materials, discuss your teaching philosophy with you, and visit a class.
