Is it possible to convert text file to a TIFF-F File?
You'd need a "text layout engine" that would layout the individual characters into their visual representation. Then you'd combine that with a rasterizer that would take the layout and produce a vector image of same.
If it's "plain ASCII" text, then you could use tools like FreeType or ImageMagick in conjunction with simple line wrapping logic to accomplish this.
