Do I need to repot?

The crowns of the d. capensis narrow leaf plants look high.

I remove dead leaves.

Do I need to repot these to bring the crowns closer to the potting medium?

I would definitely repot! Prepare a new pot and a cup of water. Pluck the capensis and put swish the roots in the water. Poke hole in prepared pot and place place plant in hole. Meld media and water from above. It will something like this in January:
The plant still thrive and look healthy, so its up to you.

But the media look old, so you will have to repot this plant in a near future anyway :)
I would repot if I were you. The plant looks like it needs it, and it would give you a chance to separate those plantlets growing in its shadow to another pot.
Remove the dead leaves to tidy up then leave well enough alone. You will eventually have to repot but there's plenty room in the pot for the seedlings to grow. It's not as if you need to get any nutrients in there is it.
I'm pretty sure that the pot is overrun with U. subulata.
