I have a ten gallon tank with 4 Live plants, some ghost shrimp and 5 neon tetras. I was wondering how bad is it to leave dead plant matter in the tank?

Check your nitrates, the problem is it decays and adds toxins to the water.

It also clogs the filter intakes if not removed.

If it is a tiny bit and nitrates and filter are not impacted...then no problem!
