I am not sure how to directly visualize a .tif image in rviz but a solution that comes into my mind is that you can read image using openCV and publish it on a topic using cv_bridge.

Hope this helps..

Take a look here:

I asked this same question a few months ago. No one seems to have a solution just yet, but people are working on various mapping solutions for ROS.
