This is a common misconception. And sudo only prompts for "password", so there's no way to know it wants the user password until you actually try it.

comment TAB completion not working in ubuntu hardy heron
Thus the question really isn't "Tab doesn't work", it's, "Running the wrong shell". Note that you can run bash from dash with "/bin/bash" and immediately see if the tab key works there. "exit" to get back to dash.
