tripleoclient does not handle failed actions

Bug Description

tripleoclient in workflows/ in the call_action method does not check if the action passed or failed. It just assumes it succeeded and returns the output. In particular, the overcloudrc create action can fall and the error is not handled, resulting in utils.write_overcloudrc treading the error message as a dict of overclodurc values.

which then fails with a cryptic error:
"string indices must be intergers"

full traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):

    ret_val = super(OpenStackShell, self).run(argv)

    Handle failed actions

    The result of syncrhonously called Mistral actions wasn't being checked
    to see if the action passed or failed. The result is now checked and if
    the action has failed, an exception will be raised.
