It would depend on the recipe. If you are making something that continues to cook (so the tomatoes would cook down into a more sauce-like consistency), then it will probably not matter all that much.

Otherwise, I wouldn't really suggest it.

If you still want to try it, I'd say you shouldn't substitute measure for measure - use less sauce than the amount of diced tomatoes called for (due to differences in consistency).
