Nope, whistle mobs is different from explore monsters
that's the official answer,
I have noticed a slight change in difficulty when whistling down 3+ TD's. Logging out then back in reset the TD counter and felt noticably easier.
Wouldnt be the first time this style of thing happened (i.e the single EP only at lvl 71 easy mode thing).
I've not tested this extensively, so perhaps it is just me. Although perhaps not if someone made a topic? suggests they felt it was harder also?
For now without testing i would suggest Nic's answer is this is the closest answer with current knowledge.
Whistle mobs are always easier than explore mobs though. Less damage dealt and less health.
