You missed the minus sign, you need to type C-u <minus> 999 C-x
<TAB>, rather than what you did.  More information may be gleaned
from finding out what C-x <TAB> actually calls:

/----[ C-h k C-x TAB ]
| C-x TAB runs the command indent-rigidly
|    which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `indent'.
| (indent-rigidly START END ARG)
|
| Indent all lines starting in the region sideways by ARG
| columns.  Called from a program, takes three arguments, START,
| END and ARG.  You can remove all indentation from a region by
| giving a large negative ARG.
