As far as I can tell, this should be fixed in lib/cppparser/lexer.h, in the nextChar()/nextChar(int) functions (about line 500):
Lexer::m_currentColumn is increased by 1 for each character read, but each skipped character should be compared to '\t' and if the comparison is true -that's the tricky part- the current editor's tabwidth should be added (instead of 1).

If I had the slightest idea how to make the tabwidth known to the beforementioned functions (query the editor?, hand it down while constructing the lexer?), I could try to provide a patch myself ...
