It's not satisfactory.  For example, try it on:

(progn
    (find-file "/tmp/exemple")
    (erase-buffer)
    (insert "\n\ta\ta\n\taa\taa\n\taaa\taaa\n"))


Also, with my emacs configuration, 
M-x replace-string RET TAB
tries to substitute a string of four spaces, not one tabulation.

Try:

 M-x replace-regexp RET C-q TAB + RET SPC SPC SPC RET 
 M-x replace-string RET C-q TAB RET SPC SPC SPC RET

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will sure show you.
