May be your Scribus was not compiled with Tiff support.
You can check this by going to Help->About Scribus
At the bottom of the About dialog there is a build ID which should look like
C-C-T-F-C (for 1.3.x version).  The T is for Tiff support. If you have a *
instead of the T, then you don't have built-in support for Tiff.
