If history logging is enabled, try:

cvs history -T -a -n <module>

According to it's
supposed to give you what you want (although you might want to pipe the
output to a filter like awk if you only want to see the tags).

I find the interface of the 'history' subcommand is demanding - even by
CVS standards. It requires so many options to generate a simple report (so
that I have to reread the manual for each use), that I generally just grep
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history instead.
