Here is a little something that may shave a few lines from your code...

This works for me on the latest version of Sierra

set input to the (123 - 456 - 7890) --  Insert Telephone Number
open location "tel://" & input & "?audio=yes"
delay 1 --  You May Need To Adjust This Delay Value
tell application "System Events"
    key code 36
end tell

I have similar thing setup in Alfred. I use this to click on Call.

tell application "System Events" to click button "Call" of front window of application process "FaceTime"
