Rather than manually counting beamlets you can set beam subdivisions:

  \set subdivideBeams = ##t
  \set baseMoment = #(ly:make-moment 1 8)

and remove the manual beams.

Additionally remove the tuplet bracket

  \omit TupletBracket

Finally you can tell LilyPond to automatically group consecutive tuplets:

  \set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 8)

which removes the need to explicitly write so many \tuplet {} expressions.

The full file now reads:

\version "2.18.2"

\relative {

  % Activate beam subdivision
  \set subdivideBeams = ##t
  \set baseMoment = #(ly:make-moment 1 8)
  \omit TupletBracket

  % Automatically group tuplets
  \set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 8)

  \clef bass
  \time 4/4
  \key bes \major

  \tuplet 3/2 {
    f16 \upbow -\markup {
      \line { \concat { \dynamic p } \italic { accel. e cresc. }}}
    f f ges16 ges16 ges16  aes16 aes16 aes16
