In the case where it dies and is restarted the stack would fail when the engine starts after OOM killing, but if it dies and never starts again then that could explain this - the calls to the heat-api will just hang and eventually RPC timeout, and the engine is the thing that asserts status, e.g calculates the timeout and sets the stack status to FAILED.
