    I'm assuming your iPad is Wi-Fi Only and incapable of using cellular data to send sms messages.

    iPads can only send iMessages, not text messages (SMS). It doesn't matter if it has cellular or not. It can't send SMS.

    As everyone has said you need to use a third party app to send text messages from an iPad. An app like Text+ will assign your iPad a number from which you can send messages back and forth.
