I had a pine entertainment center built in my living room. It will not be subjected to much wear and tear. I purchased Olympic Maximum solid stain to finish it. I have used solid stain in the past and found it easy to work with. My question is after much searching online and not finding my specific question is; Once it is applied and dried will it be safe to use the outdoor stain indoors. Would it be better to seal it with an indoor grade sealer?

Go ahead and use it…  sealing it is optional… Good Luck!

It fine to use.  I would seal it for better scratch resistance.  Use a spar varnish instead of polyurethane.
