I cannot reproduce this in GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+
Version 2.14.4) of 2009-03-30 on escher: for me the font parameter has
no effect, which agrees with the doc string:

tooltip-frame-parameters is a variable defined in `tooltip.el'.
Its value is 
((name . "tooltip")
 (internal-border-width . 2)
 (border-width . 1))

Frame parameters used for tooltips.

If `left' or `top' parameters are included, they specify the absolute
position to pop up the tooltip.

Note that font and color parameters are ignored, and the attributes
of the `tooltip' face are used instead.

Can you get what you want with set-face-attribute?
