Point and Spot Lights no longer work when using the Orthographic Camera Projection Mode. Note that the Directional Light still works as intended.

This is a regression from behavior that worked in 4.13.2 but is now broken in 4.14.1 and later.

Working: 4.13.2 Binary CL-3172292
Broken: 4.14.1 Binary CL-3224400
Broken: 4.16 Dev-Main CL-3240308

Steps to Reproduce

1. Open any template project with a camera already setup (Third Person works well)
2. Set the Camera Project Mode to Orthographic
3. Add a point/spot light to the viewport
4. PIE

Results: Point and Spot Lights are no longer visible.
