No, making a DPS a tank only works in low level games.
Xin Zhao wants to have a word with you, as does Warwick.

Lol Hp doesn't make you a tank. It makes you a fatty running around. If anyone grabbed a bloodrazor or deathfire grasp Teemo would have been dead just as fast. You lucked out or something.

A tank is not defined by getting armor/HP/MR items. Any champion can do that. I heard Tank Soraka is beastly, but that doesn't qualify her as a tank champion.

True tanks have a certain synergy between their abilities and tanky items that make them viable, even though they have no AD or AP equipment. Damage mitigating skills and the ability to initiate are examples of what defines a tank.

For example, Shen is inherently a tank due to the nature of his kit; he can deny ganks with his ultimate, he has a shield, his burst is dependent on his maximum HP, and he can initiate with his AoE taunt.

Teemo? No. He can stack defensive items and then AFK in the middle of the map all day, because that's all he will be able to do. He's useless with tanky items, whereas a Shen is infinitely more useful with said items.

Tanks are the new dps thanks to ignite having no counter.

And Teemo IS a tank, everyone wants to kill him, hell i always towerdive teemos, he's probably the most annoying champion in game, therefore a tank build works very well.
