When converting from pixels/cm to pixels/inch the resolution should be multiplied by 2.54 not divided.

I.e. line 283 (aprox) in tiff2ps.c should be changed from

  xres /= 2.54; yres /= 2.54;

to

  xres *= 2.54; yres *= 2.54;

Hmmm, converting from centimeters to inches -- you are right.

On the other hand: I have never seen or head about TIFF files with ResolutionUnit == RESUNIT_CENTIMETER, but since the standard defines it as a legal value your fix should be included.
