If these are really tags, not branch-tags, then no code is lost. Note
that "newer" CVS version would not let you delete branch tags with this

But the big question is: Why do you want to get rid of the tags? Tags
are rather cheap, and I hardly recognize a reason to delete them. Just
let them there, this is the best possibility not to break anything.
