Temp at 200 and clutch slipping there is no a connection.

Sounds like a misadjusted clutch you need to have about 3/4 to 1.5 Inch free travel.

 overheating and slipping clutch when hot

Whereas many parts of a hard working tractor heat proportionate to the workload, there is no direct relationship between engine temperature and clutch slippage. You have two separate issues.

200F is too hot, there should be a metric thermostat in there. Most common is 80C, which is about 176F. Most common reason for overheating is an obstructed radiator, most common location is behind the battery. Another common error is the wrong pressure cap, yours likely requires one between 3 and 7 psi. Clean the radiator with compressed air from the back. Avoid the temptation to use a power washer, they'll destroy the fins. If necessary, remove the radiator completely and soak it clean. Make sure the fan belt is tight, verify (or change) the thermostat and pressure cap.

Clutch slipping when hot sounds like one or both of the friction discs are glazed. Most common reason - riding the clutch. Fix is much more difficult than the overheating problem though, it involves splitting the tractor and replacing or rebuilding the clutchpack.
