I ultimately want to make a tag on past revisions of files, but I do not
want to create the tag in the wrong place and have to move lots of tags.
Suppose I have checked out a module by a tag, and have advanced some files
by checking out specific versions of files (the revisions already exist, I
will not be making changes and committing.) How does TortoiseCVS apply
tags? Does it apply them based on the state of my sandbox or based on the
state of the repository on the server?

Tortoise uses the cvs tag command, which acts on the sandbox. You can
create or move tags. When you tag a sandbox with Tortoise, exactly the
revisions you have loaded in the sandbox get tagged.
You can also use cvs tag from the command line. That gives you more
options; among others the possibility to tag any revision of a file.
For tagging arbitrary files that you don't have in a sandbox, you would use
the cvs rtag command.
