You can die from most things under the right circumstances, but
Like any flu strain, a person with a normal healthy immune system, provided no secondary infection develops will recover from it without intervention.
Anti virals reduce severity & duration. Because it is the secondary infections that cause death in a lot of cases, the aim is to decrease the virus load faster, Generally the longer people stay sick, immune system is weaker, infection sets in. Also, more severe the virus is, faster immune system weaken, infections sets in. In children/elderly/chronically ill, immune system is weaker = faster, infection sets in.

Swine flu is just like any other flu, tamiflu works by releaving symptoms and helping the body fight the infection. By not taking any treatments you'll just feel worse and take longer to recover but as long as you get lots of rest and fluids and you didn't have any health worries before there's not reason you won't make a full recovery.
