Why not use a 3rd party dll? If someone has done it and "perfected" it why not use it?

The text on a TIFF file (or any other image file) is only a human interpretation of a bunch of pixels. There is no text present in the file (at least as far as what you perceive on the image is concerned).

Since you don't wish to use third party software, then the answer is that it's time you start to develop your own OCR application.
