What you describe is not a bug, (but...) :

ae (virtual) fonts use cmr-7bits at driver level, and in ss family,
cmr-7bits does not exist at 500-design size, so 800 is used...

ec fonts 0500 design-size exists and is used in sffamily (tfm, mf, and/or
cm-super type1).

What may be compared is \tiny\sffamily with cm-super and with ec-family mf
fonts (suppress or comment the entry in the map for testing) : it will be
the same (and may be ugly, yes...).

You could also try this (just for a test, if you want it for a constant
usage, better to define a new family) :

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\DeclareFontFamily{T1}{cmss}{}
\DeclareFontShape{T1}{cmss}{m}{n}{
<-9> ecss0800
<9-10> ecss0900
<10-12> ecss1000
<12-17> ecss1200
<17-> ecss1728
}{}
\begin{document}
\tiny\sffamily This is a short sentence in cm-super.
\renewcommand{\sfdefault}{aess}\sffamily
This is a short sentence using ae-fonts.
\end{document}
