There is no way that is going to last without having a "ghost line" there. You WILL see it once it's painted. The only way you can fake something like that (not welding it up properly) is to bend in the side of the hole a little so when you spread your filler over it there is a thin layer all the way around the outside. This is still likely going to show a ghost line but you may get away with it.
