The tool tips use the "General" font.  You can change it in the Fonts KCM widget.

It it is "ugly" they you probably have another problem since the default: Helvetica 
shouldn't be ugly.

Do you have this (General font) set to Helvetica?

Did you install some scalable fonts?

If not, I suggest that you start with:

Or for real Helvetica:

Note: use WINE to unpack.

Note: get the AFM files there.

Otherwise, try the scalable fonts that come with XFree86 or the GhostScript fonts.
