Zorunda can't replace the entire "olmalı"; it still needs a verb, and an infinitive at that:
"Ağlayan adam mutsuz olmak zorunda," is possible.
However, that would rather mean: The man who is crying has to/is obliged to be unhappy. He's bound by laws to be unhappy. ;p
"Zorunda" doesn't have the "assumption nuance" that -meli/-malı has.
