"Is this the same like Microsoft Dynamics "
The same in what ways, specifically?
Both of these are huge complex, applications.
Dynamics encompasses a lot more than just Reporting, so you will have to be very specific here.
Tableau Reporting Tools is just what it says, a Reporting tool only.
So they can both do reporting (Sorting, Grouping, Summaries, ...etc)
...but the way in which these things are done is different in each application.

<-What kinds of reporting tools is it?>
Not sure what you mean by this, a reporting tool is a reporting tool, ...as I said, they do the same thing, but they will differ in how they do it.
To list every difference would be too time consuming to do here...
(video links below)

<I am used to with Microsoft product >
Then look into MS SQL Server Reporting Services instead:
http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/en/us/solutions-technologies/business-intelligence/reporting.aspx
...where the learning curve will not be as steep (and pricing may be lower for existing MS Customers)

<- Please provide examples>
Samples would require real live data, so your best bet would be to download the free trail, or view thew demo.
They have a FAQ with loads of VBA topics listed.

All of this info and a lot more is available on their main site:

If you want tutorials, or demos, ...etc, ...YouTube has quite a few:

Finally, are you only considering Tableau?
There are other Reporting tools worth investigating if you have very specific Reporting needs:
