The error message explains that you need to add the load_package flow in your tcl script. 
For example: 

## Open the project, run a compilation, and
## export the project database to
## version-compatible database files
load_package database_manager
load_package flow
set project chiptrip
project_new $project -overwrite
execute_flow -compile
export_database backup
project_close $project
