Based on my tries, both "<S-tab>" and "S-<tab>" don't work. Both of
these forms have been mentioned in the "Angle-Bracket Notation" of the
emacswiki [1]:

Modifier keys that are part of a key sequence that contains a pseudo
key are sometimes written inside the angle brackets: `<S-tab>’,
`<C-insert>’. And sometimes they are written outside: `S-<tab>’,
