Dielectric grease is not an alternative to solder. "Dielectric", by definition DOES NOT
conduct electricity. It's purpose on electrical connections is to exclude air and moisture. When used on plugs and sockets, etc., the action of inserting the plug scrapes the dielectric grease off the mating conductors while leaving enough to protect the connection.
If you want to smear dielectric grease on the terminal after crimping, that's fine but heat shrink tubing is better. Both is best and you can buy terminals with dielectric filled heat shrink tubing attached.
