If anything, it might be dangerous to the headphones (if levels are too high and blow out something)

But guitar + pedal will be A-OK.

Wouldn't it sound like shit?

It's not the worst thing in the world, depending on the tone of the tube-screamer circuit.

It's like using one of those Lightsnake guitar-->USB cables, except the TS is driving it instead of having a clean tone.
