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`.

You might want to read our handbook as well, especially its part on USE 
flags [1].
