According to the Microsoft Product Use Rights 2014 document you have license mobility for Exchange 2013, which means that you can move the license from machine to machine within your datacenter as often as you want. There is no license mobility for Windows. This means that you need at least one Windows Server license for each host node in your cluster. You will of course also need Windows CALs and Exchange CALs, or some other type of CAL that covers both Windows and Exchange such as Core CAL.

I'm summary, for just Exchange to run in a 3 node cluster you need
3 Windows Server Standard or Datacenter licenses
1 Exchange Server license
N Windows CALs
N Exchange CALs,  where N is the number of people who will connect to Exchange
