How can I stack/pile point layers within administrative areas with QGIS. Close points (categorized) should not overlap in zoomed out map (and lose their position).

One approach I can think of is to use a MMQGIS plugin which will then provide you with the option of to use "Gridify", this will place the points to a grid.

You will have to tweak things a bit until it looks the way you want it to be using the categorize style.
