Let me please explain what I am trying to accomplish:

As Input, we have a Striped TIFF (Photometric Interpretation: separated and Planar Configuration: separate image planes, where each strip below represents one plane of the CMYK) with the following characteristics:

And what we would like to achieve is a tiled TIFF using the above input TIFF.

Can someone please tell me if the libtiff (or any of its tools) are capable of doing this type of "conversion"? And if so, using which call/tool?

While I know that development GraphicsMagick 1.2 can deal with your file, have you tried libtiff's 'tiffcp' program? It is intended for these tasks. Since your image is fairly large, make sure that your system has plenty of RAM available.

Do you want the output file to be RGBA tiled only (consecutive samples), or planar+tiled?
