I have a ton of taps but pilot drills seem to disappear regularly.
Looking for a SET of tap drills but can't seem to find any without the taps.
No such animal?

Just buy the individual drills.

Yup, I just bought an empty drill index and the drills in the sizes I needed for taps and clearance holes. Ditto for metric tap drills as I do not plan to have every 1/10 mm size. Of course you can always use the closest inch size drill for metric.

This method has the additional advantage of purchasing these often used drill bits in package amounts so the price per bit is lower and you always have new, sharp spares.

But then, I later purchased a full set of letter, number, and fraction drills. They were in the screw machine lengths so there is no actual overlap, I guess.

Just buy the individual drills.
