Grout or wood filler

I am going to put a stone veneer on the front of my house. The house is made of plywood. I have some grout but actually I am thinking of using wood filler as "grout" instead of real grout. What do you think?

hmmm dont know about the wood filler but the grout would work fine, i used real bathroom tile grout as stucco on my pizza place and it came out wonderfully, just seal it with a spray sealer once your done to prevent flaking.

I thought I'd add some of my reasoning here. Firstly gout is a water based product and water and wood aren't usually good friends. I have a large area to cover. Now I have sealed the wood with an oil based primer but if this were the real world I would use a backer on the tile to protect the wood or I would use green board or cement board. Wood filler on the other hand is designed to work with wood, and since my stone veneer isn't really stone but a high density plaster, which is lighter in weight and closer to wood in density than say grout, I thought that material wise it might be a better match.
