This is not a misbehavior of `TeX-clean' as the subject suggests.  You
are simply calling it in the output buffer of the LaTeX run and not in
the buffer of the LaTeX file.  So you gotta make the latter buffer the
current one before calling `TeX-clean'.

You likely also want to run LaTeX synchronously because otherwise
`TeX-clean' will get called before the LaTeX run is finished.

Something like the following should work:

(define-key TeX-mode-map (kbd "<f5>")
               (lambda ()
                 (let ((buf (current-buffer))
                       (TeX-process-asynchronous nil))
                   (TeX-command-menu "LaTeX")
                   (with-current-buffer buf
                     (TeX-command-menu "Clean")))))
