No, if the circuit doesn't already close now when you shut the door, it certainly won't close if you tape the pin in.

You must disconnect the harness from the switch and install a jumper to close the circuit. You may find that the plug is very corroded and may need to be repaired/replaced.

You could try shooting silicone spray into the pinhole of the switch to buy some time before you can get a new switch, but it sounds like the switch may be too far gone for that.
