The following test configuration file works fine (tested with monit 5.18):
set daemon 5
set httpd port 2812 allow localhost
check process "httpd" matching "httpd"
if does not exist for 3 cycles
then exec "/etc/monit/pagerduty-trigger crond"
else if passed for 3 cycles
then exec "/etc/monit/pagerduty-resolve crond"
Which monit version do you use? (monit -V)
