In my experience, ATC delays fall into the same category as weather (in fact many 'weather' delays are in fact ATC-imposed delays as a result of the weather). I understand your gripe in this case, as there is no actual weather occurring (as I sit in sunny Southwest Florida, I can attest to this!) but I think agents are using the ATC/weather shorthand and doubt they are intentionally being misleading. I think they lump all ATC into 'weather' because it usually is.
