If the exhaust system was plugged the engine wont run, normally. It will start and idle until the back pressure is such that it can't take in more air/fuel mixture and then stall.
After the converter, there may be a resonator, and then the muffler. Is any exhaust flowing out of the tail pipe? You might try hooking up a scanner and see what your oxygen sensor(s) is/are doing.
Also, scan the MAF(mass air flow) sensor assembly.
Sound like the engine can't breathe, and its getting to much fuel.
