This is not proper syntax. stunnel only routes connections to host:port;
it's not an HTTP proxy. So you want this:
connect = myurl.com:443

Your client needs to specify the /api/path in the URL it's trying to access.

If you want to map e.g. http://localhost:4433/ ->
https://myurl.com:443/api/path then you will need something more
complicated than stunnel.
One way to do this is with a reverse-proxy on the "myurl" server-side:
accept URLs with / and redirect them to /api/path.
But the best thing to do is probably change the client so that it is
requesting /api/path and not /
