Sure, it's electrically appropriate for the outside, but the outer
sheath/insulation should be UV-hard.
PE is no good, ABS or rubber are great. That said, anything will work

There's a box somewhere buried in Penisland / the closet last I saw them.
Not sure if there are any male connectors, but there was plenty of
110-block female termination points. Keystone jacks.
These with little patch cables work fine.
