You don't need to re-install. But if you kick off a generalize (which runs immediately) then the changes it makes are already done by the time you've "changed your mind." So you'll have to go through the OOBE process (since that is the other flag you included) and then rerun sysprep to get into audit mode.

Does that mean reinstalling windows? No. But it does mean you'll be generalizing. Running through the specialize phase. Running through the OOBE phase. Then generalizing *again* with an audit mode thrown in the mix. If you have programs that touch certain areas then that process should be taken into consideration when making such a decision.
