Unfortunately, FTP can't cooperate with stunnel.
As FAQ says ( http://www.stunnel.org/faq/troubleshooting.html#ToC14 ):

  FTP over Stunnel won't work
       I just can't get ftp to work over Stunnel no matter how hard I
       Answer: Stunnel cannot be used for the FTP daemon because of the
       nature of the FTP protocol which utilizes multiple ports for data
       transfers. There are SSL aware FTP servers available.
       Alternitively you could use a different protocol. All versions of
       SSH include a program called scp which works like rcp. Recent
       versions of OpenSSH include a program called sftp which has an
       ftp-like feel.
