I think Ange-FTP won't work with sftp because the output from that
program is slightly different from the output of the real ftp program.

For example, typing "dir" into an ftp client will print these two

229 Entering Extended Passive Mode (|||30318|)
150 Here comes the directory listing.

Then comes the dir listing.  Then comes another line:

226 Directory send OK.

These numbered lines are missing in sftp.

Advertisement alert: You could try Tramp, though, which uses ssh to
connect to the remote host.  It can use scp to transfer the files, or
it can transfer the files directly through the shell connection using
UU or base64 encoding.
