Silverlight does not support tiffs and gifs.  You may have to use a server script that can convert the tiff data to jpg or byte data and send that back to Silverlight.

You can write your own HttpHandler that converts the  Tiff  into a format supported in Silverlight using TiffBitmapDecoder Class. Or you can go for a third part components such as  accusoft ImageGear for Silverlight   which support TIFF images.
