You can't do exactly the same thing in Digikam, as it doesn't have 

But I can think of at least two ways to tint a B&W image from the B&W 
converter (which are still in RGB mode!):
- use the channel mixer or
- use the colour balance dialog (which I prefer)
(and probably even the 'curves' dialog would work).

This way, you can get a more subtle toning than through the B&W converter
