Azalea are strong plants. They shouldn't die just because they are a year in not ideal potting soil.
But what kills azalea most of the time is overwatering. So during periods with a lot of rain moving it in cover will help.
That's all I can say. I can't say if your plant is 70% safe or 98% safe.
.....time to stop playing with the tree and leave it to grow for a while...like 3-4 years, .
