It also allows you to be useful in teamfights. Nidalee's main problem is that you usually don't know what to do in teamfights. You usually won't be able to oneshot enemy ad/ap carry so it is really hard to be useful as a bruiser. However by building tanky you will actually be able to absorb so much damage. It's like you won't have any damage. Cougar form base damages are so high you don't even have to build any ad/ap items.
Like i said any build is ok on nidalee based on your lane opponent. You have a hard ad lane? Just build Warden's mail first. You have a hard ap lane? Go for chalice+spirit visage. You are just stomping your opponent? Go for tri force+inf edge.
Max q after e. It deals huuuuuge damage even if you don't have any ap.
Take ult whenever you can.
