I know when converting from Natural Gas to Propane, due to pressure differences the Propane connections always had reducers in the lines with tiny orifices. If you connected the system without the orifices you'd create a monster fireball and usually blow the guts out of whatever you just installed. (I did pool heaters for a while) On the other side, if you had an orifice in the line for propane, but were hooking to natural gas, you'd just have a small gas leak and nothing would light, until enough built up in the appliance, then it detonated... (No I never made this happen, but the safety videos from the manufacturers were entertaining when we went to the schools)

Not sure about Butane... I honestly think your problem might get worse if you converted. I'd lean towards a different burner (regulator should be sold with it) or electric as mentioned above.
