I'm pretty sure that programs like ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick can do this too. The "montage" program with the "-draw" option looks promising. They can create TIFF directly.

vips has a text render operation too, for example:

  vips im_text fred.tif "hello world" "sans 12" 0 0 72

will render the text "hello world" into the image fred,tif in the font sans 12, left-aligned, with no line wrapping, at 72 dpi. See:
