That's because nobody ever ensured that the cite package works with
Eplain.  Eplain is not LaTeX, it only provides stubs for a few LaTeX
packages to enable them to work under Eplain, where it makes sense.
Here's a list of packages which work with Eplain:

Looking at the documentation for cite.sty I see this:

   "Modify LaTeX's normal citation mechanism"

which makes me very doubtful that cite.sty can be made to work with
Eplain without reimplementing a big chunk of LaTeX.

I think your best bet is to find a plain TeX package which does what
you want, lacking which you'd have to do some coding.

Sorry for not being of much help,
