I don't see why it would distort the cylinder. The heat from TIG welding the hole will produce much more distortion than tapping the hole. If you are using a custom head then why don't you just make sure the head covers the hole. Make a head gasket that doesn't allow air through the hole. The only reason you would plug it is it makes an air leak in the exhaust and makes noise, so if the head covers the hole then why worry.
