I don't suppose it would hurt to try, but I still suspect it won't work. The difference is the Mac is pretty much open to any Bluetooth device connecting. Whereas on the Apple TV, they have locked out anything that's not an approved device at a software (I'm assuming not hardware) level.the old duel shock worked natively with a mac computer but needed some setting up, found these instructions for mac might be worth trying with a usb c on atv4 and seeing if you can set it up via bluetooth when connected. Once these instructions (for mac osx) were completed you could use it wirelessly. I seem to remember the controller number lights didn't work though. Might be worth a try if anyone on has a usb c lying around (not likley!!!!!)
