What is the original format - illustrator? If so, then NO do not save as a tif, save as an eps. Then link to indesign. The whole point of vector based art is that you can enlarge or shrink it without loss of data. If you enlarge a bitmap tif to 10 x 10 it will look jaggy/low resolution. If you enlarge a vector eps, it should look crisp and clean.
You can use illustrator file as it is.
If you want to see better quality preview in InDesign then change setting View >> Display performance >> High Quality Display.

You should use vector images every time that is possible.

Vector get its ppi value when printed or when you make it PDF.
Bitmaps have efective ppi value that can be too small if resized larger in InDesign.
