Not quite. tar cf - will pipe to stdout, but tar xf - will pipe from stdin.
For the OP's problem, I'd try piping through dd as a file buffer, and run sync on completion. Is there a /dev/rst0, like on some of the old unixes ( doesn't look like it after checking my CentOS 4 server)? The difference was that rst0 was unbuffered, and st0 was buffered. Either way, the sync may help.
Worth a try (:
