Niles is correct, however, if you have a New Instrument set up for an external MIDI sound module in Options/Preferences(OS X) > External Devices, a work around is:

  1. Create an Instrument track. 
  2. Create a MIDI event on that track with 1/4 notes for instance from start to end. I usually add 4 notes first, then Duplicate and Group those until the desired duration is reached. 
  3. Place the MIDI events on the desired MIDI note.
  4. Set the MIDI out of this track to your External MIDI Device.

When you press play this track will send those notes out to your external MIDI device, mimicking a MIDI Metronome click out.

No, there's no MIDI click.
