As far as I can see, LibTiff does not provide a tool to convert ASCII to TIFF.
I don't know any direct conversion-tool but a possible solution could be a pipe/batch of the following:
an ascii_to_ps filter like genscript.
then GhostScript to produce ppm
finally in the libtiff there's a ppm2tiff tool
genscript: http://www.ngs.fi/mtr/genscript/index.html GhostScript: http://www.gnu.org/software/ghostscript/ghostscript.html
Can't garantuee any performance :)
Ghostscript can produce various tiff formats directly.
A simpler but less featureful method is to use pbmtext | pnmtotiff.
