    Actually it depends on what you are trying to say.

    The word tough does not necessarily need to be a negative word but stubborn is definitely negative. Take a look at the first answer you get, the word tough can be sort of positive in saying a guy is persistent and not giving up but stubborn people won't change their minds easily.

    It really depends on how you use the words but personally, I think the word stubborn 語氣較重.
