To keep track of the pics that I print or export I am currently adding a tag (such as "print") and using Smart collections which filter on these tags. This has a major failure point, in requiring that I remember to add the tag :-)

Is there a native solution in Lightroom to filter all the pics that have been printed?

I am currently using version 4.

No, Lightroom doesn't offer the native ability to filter all printed/exported images. For printed images your current system seems to be the best solution although depending on your workflow using publish services may offer a better solution for keeping track of exported images.
