I don’t think that a clone field will clone itself. What you are asking would cause ACF to go into an infinite loop trying to create those fields in the admin which is why it will not continue.
Is it possible to create infinitely nested fields? Yes, it could probably be done, but not by using the clone field unless you want to disable the checking which would cause your site to crash. Is it a good idea? Probably not.
