That is because -tabulate, summarize- does not allow iweights.
The only weights allowed are either aweights or fweights. You
can see that when you type -help tabulate_summarize-.

You are right, that Stata issued the wrong error message, it
should have told you:
iweight not allowed

Hope this helps,
