What's current digiKam release you using ? 
0.8.0 work fine here with tiff files. 

Your tiff files are in 8/bits/color/pixels or 16/bits/color/pixels ? 

Witch soft are you used to create your TIFF file ?

Are you any problem in digiKam main interface or in showfoto, or both ?

What's messages you have when you start digiKAm from a  console ?

Thumbnails are created using a kio slave. Take a look in ~/.xsession-errors 
file when you trying to render thumbnail.
