Not an answer to the -tab- options but you could try -fre- (-ssc
install fre-) , it appears to keep the format

Also, if you simply want to tabulate the date variable, could be to
generate a string version (using the format option of -tostring-) and
tabulate the string version

******
clear *

input str20 date1
04jun2007
06nov2012
26nov2012
30dec2012
28feb2013
28may2013
19sep2013
end

g date2 = date(date1, "DMY")
format date2 %dDD/NN/CCYY

tab date2
fre date2
