Actually if you have good hands and some speed you would be a much better tight end. Jason Witten of the Dallas Cowboys was about your size at that age. Being a defensive end would require you to bulk up to about 260 by the time you are a senior.
Given your height and weight, I think that you will make a good defense. To become better, ensure that you practice a lot and engage yourself in activities like weight lifting to make you stronger and build body muscles.
Without seeing you practice or in a game situation my first thoughts are no. You will not make a good DE. You are underweight and a little too short. That being said you may have a quickness or another skill that makes up for your lack of size. I encourage you to try out and the coaches will know where to put you if they feel you should keep that position or try another
