You can! Just like you can use your couch as patio furniture. It will all work very nice until you get some exposure to the weather.

Go and buy some inexpensive Fence & Barn paint instead for your shed.

The main difference between an interior and an exterior paint is the UV light absorber content that affect the degradation of the resins upon exposure to sunlight; sure, you can use it, but don't expect it to last.
