Can you clarify? Do you mean that the tips don't fit over the outlets or do you mean that the pipes running from the tips to the outlets don't fit over them? I would be inclined not to put the pipes in the outlets. If you are speaking about the pipes and not the outlets, I would have them butt welded together.

I would butt weld it--but that is me. I think either would work.

When I did my exhaust I just kept the stock outlet pipes where they were, welded extension pieces to them so they reached the new muffler which was obviously not as big as the stock one.

It is only appropriate when speaking in ACTUAL welding terms. (Notice I didn't say exhaust term as that may be missconstrued).
