Say Krueger2 tries to cast Telekinesis on a Bloodweaver that is more than 5" away. According to stealth, the spell would miss, but TK requires no attack roll for friendly models, so it should still hit?

Stealth only affects against ranged and magic attacks. It does nothing with non-offensive spell.

As Stormpuppy mentions, only on ranged and magic attacks does stealth cause you to miss. Telekinesis is OFF: * and in the text states that it is only offensive when it targets an enemy model.

OFF: * also means you can chose arcing node as target, what usualy prohibited to offensive spells

No...OFF: * does not mean you can choose the arc node you are using as a target. You cannot choose the arc node you are channeling through as the target of an offensive spell (point of origin cannot be chosen as the target). The wording of the spell stating that it is only offensive when cast at an enemy model means you can chose the arc node as the target. That is because if you are targeting the arc node, it isn't an offensive spell.

Unless the channeler happens to be an enemy model. There is at least one instance where a warcaster could channel Telekinesis through an enemy model, in which case it could not target the channeler, because Telekinesis is an offensive spell when targeting enemy models.

Luckily none of those methods of channeling through an enemy model currently co-exist with a spell that is not offensive when targeting friendly models and offensive when targeting enemy models (unless I am missing one completely) :) That said: It is a very good distinction to make, and is greatly appreciated.

Corruptor's Psycho Venom + Scaverous' Telekinesis. But we're digressing from the question.
