No it's wrong. WINEDLLPATH is for builtin dlls. You have to copy native dlls into system32 or into program's directory. Wine will still use bultins unless you explicitly tell Wine to use natives.

On the separate note you should NEVER EVER override all those dlls. Go one at a time or you will break everything.

AND in case of comctl32.dll you still have to make an extra step. Otherwise Wine will still use it's own. That extra step - remove associated manifest file from windows/winesxs/manifests.
