I thought "we" and "wij" were synonyms. Why is "we" wrong in this context?

It is accepted. However, if it is a listening exercise only wij is accepted in this case due to the different pronunciation.

there is not context here. 'Wij' would be used when it is important to stress who wrote the letter. If you just described the process 'we' is used.
