Sure, and you can use a screwdriver as a can opener, but that doesn't make it a can opener, and if someone told me there was a can opener in the toolbox, then I'd expect to find a can opener, I wouldn't be looking for a screwdriver.

Typically a metronome goes "tick, tick, tick, tick, ..."
whereas a click track generally goes "Tick, tock, tock, tock, Tick, tock, tock, tock, ..."
Usually for a "click track", you want the first beat of the bar to be accented.
A "Click track" and a "Metronome" are certainly related, but they are different things, and for musicians that are familiar with the terms they conjure up quite different concepts and different uses. As Wikipedia says: "It [a click track] can also serve a purpose similar
to a metronome" (emphasis mine). It doesn't say that a click track is
a metronome, or even is a kind of metronome.
