Although this may be an incredibly belated answer, but I realized just now that you had posted something on my wall concerning として. But, I want you to realize that what you had said was not correct. として, as you noted, was "as". It was not "to make". This would be expressed by にして in the contexts that you gave. And in other contexts, the causative would need to be used. I nor is any other source trying to trick you. Things are what they are, and this really is "as" in its finest equivalence in Japanese.

Yes, I got to that question. It turns out that the sentences you gave were still well within the usages discussed in the site. There was nothing amiss. I included other lessons that you could visit.
