Yes but the end didn't really justify the means, he ended up being no better than the criminals he sought to remove.
If we speculate, if he didn't die, the possibility is he would've become the god of the new world, but he would've gone mad with power, relentlessly killing those that opposed him, or even turning his eyes on petty crimes (like littering). From the perspective of those in the series, ending him there and then really was the only option.
From a writer's standpoint, he had to die to keep the story from becoming uninteresting, because the whole series previously was his quest for what was essentially world domination, it would've become stale if he'd beaten Near and gone unopposed.
