Does a small cut on finger from knife needed to be treated with tetanus shot?

Does not sound. like an injury that is high risk for tetanus. However, it is always a good idea to be current on tetanus prophylaxis, or for any immunization. Get a tetanus shot just to be sure, if there is ANY question of its need.

Would it be a good idea to go get a tetanus shot for finger laceration from glass?

A cut is a cut. Tetanus is possible when a cut on the skin is contaminated by tetanus spores that are all around, predominantly in soils. It doesn't matter what made the cut if the exposure comes after the skin is open. The rusty nail is the classic source because it is on the ground to begin with when people step on it.
