You can delete whatever image files you want without ruining the catalog. The worst that can happen is if Lightroom thinks an image is in the catalog but can't find it on the hard drive, it will ask if you want to try to locate it manually. If you can't locate it, or choose not to, you can delete that entry from the catalog. In your case it sounds like there are files on the hard drive that aren't in the catalog -- you can delete those with no worries whatsoever.
