I can't think of a single good reason as to why you shouldn't be able to respec in some way (spend tons of gold, specific items etc) as an inability to respec only harms new players and essentially forces replays of the game once people learn what paths they wish to take. That is TERRIBLE in my honest opinion.
I'm really turned off starting it now knowing i'm probably going to end up with a badly spec'd character whose skills i've chosen I don't even like just because I felt that sitting down and theory crafting for a few hours was a waste of my time. I prefer to learn by doing.
Unless of course i've misunderstood something.
You can respec, 1 point at a time, starting at the end of a chain, using items you find in game. So you can, but if you wanted to redo your whole tree, probably easier to re-roll. At least that's how it seems to me, if anyone knows different, feel free to correct me.
All that said though, I don't think there is bad/useless choices, you can probably get through the game with whatever, just certain things might be more optimal.
