Merging a 300W (110v) temperature controller with 1500W (120v) heating element?
Will I meet any issues with this rig?
Operating temperature will be approx 200°C (400°F)

Nahh. Should be fine. Except for the controller catching fire, that might not be fine.

As others stated, you will have issues worthy of a framed picture. Have your controller power a relay (mechanical or solid state) rated for the 1500W heating element.

You will be exceeding the current capacity of the controller by 500%.
The contacts will fuse closed, and the heater will run continuously until it catches fire.

CONTROLLER SHALL BE BURNT DOWN BY OVERLOAD.

I would expect you to have the issue of a burnt up temperature controller since it is not rated anywhere near 1500 W.
