I would NOT use a thin plastic tubing,,,(PEX is OK)
Compare the "convienince factor" of having water and ice in the fridge, vs
the impact of a leak when you are not home.
Not a good tradeoff, I don't mind filling the ice tray by hand.

The risk of a damaging leak is small, the convenience of crushed ice
at the door is great, IMO. If you followed the probability of a
leak, an overflow, etc, we wouldn't have toilets, dishwashers or many
bathtubs either. Why bring water via plumbing into the house at all?
Plus, that's what homeowner's insurance is for, isn't it? I have
3 decades plus of experience with ice makers, using just plastic line
and no disasters, not even a leak, so far.
