Explain why it's wrong? It's wrong because what you end up with still isn't a circle.
Panel 2: polygon makes a round trip in 4, but circle does it in 3.14159
Panel 3, polygon does it in 4, but circle does it in 3.14159
Panel 4, polygon does it in 4, but circle does it in 3.14159
Panel 5, polygon does it in 4, but circle is still doing it in 3.14159

The corners and square would be outside of the circle the whole time, and never intersect it, ensuring an overestimate of the perimeter the whole time.

This seems like a smart theory, and you would think it would work (it's almost what they do for the coast lines), but eventually you would have to start taking away some of the area in the square to conform to the circle; as long there is excess area in the square, the measurement will not be correct. That is difficult to measure, as you are combining arcs and straight lines in the measurement, and this experiment is done to determine the ratio of the diameter of perimeter, so using pi would defeat the purpose of this.

The way to correct this is to put half of the perimeter of the square in the circle, and half out, as opposed to all of it out. You will find that the length of the side of the square is about 0.785, and 0.785 x 4 = 3.14 = pi.
