Well, it seems that you're a bit confused by the concept of USE flags.
You basically *don't* install or remove a package in order to get a
particular feature, you just set up a USE flag and rebuild *all*
affected packages. The command you used here rebuilt only the
media-libs/tiff package, leaving everything else intact. What you want
to run now is `emerge --update --newuse world`.
