That is called 6-sided sealing. But beware: that generic advice can be disastrous as some sealers and mortars won’t be compatible. If they aren’t compatible, the mortar will not bond to the tile. If you really want to do this, call the Tech Department of the munufacturer of the mortar you intend to use and ask for their approval of your sealer/mortar combo. Specifically ask if there will be an issue with poor bonding.
