Alas, the short answer is that you cannot do this.  

Word (like most modern word processors) doesn't really embody the concept of a line of text (except in special cases like a header...). Text flows within a paragraph depending on several factors : font size, the actual characters, and the physical characteristics (page size, margin settings, etc.) of the printer device context selected.

Most (if not all) software that renders Word to TIFF does it by implementing a printer driver based on the raster printer model. This means that Word (or whatever other Windows program is generating print) is responsible for rendering the text into the DC, and the driver is called for each line of pixels that is produced.  It's pretty easy to take each line of pixels, pass them into your compression routines, and generate a TIFF file without knowing *anything* about Word file structures, font metrics or anything else.
