You are limited in what you can do on your tile. The user can expand the tile to be a rectangle or a large square, but you can still only show certain things in there (words, icon, pictures, a handful of status indicators etc). Microsoft controls that piece in order to give the user a consistent feel throughout their desktop.
 
Once you launch the app, I don't think there is any limitation on what you can do. You'll be using XAML or HTML5 (or maybe C++, but I know nothing about that), and there is no technical reason you can't design or style a control in anyway you like. You're only limited by your skills and imagination. That being said, it might be harder to get your app in the store if it looks like a traditional desktop app, rather than embracing the Metro style. I'm not sure how or if they'll enforce that.
 
I'm sure the 3rd party control developers will be along with their metro style stuff soon, until then, look at phone controls to get an idea of what the other Metro controls might look like. Infragistics has this TreeMap[^] control that looks like how I think a Metro style tree would be displayed.
