Here is one possible way. The essential idea is to turn the CellTags
information into Text cells.

Let us suppose I have the following notebook with a title and  two
entries with CellTags

      Cell[My Title, Title, TextAlignment -> Center, TextJustification
-> 0],
            Cell[Plateau's Problem, Text, CellTags -> {mytag:
            Zero Mean  Curvature, mytag:Capillarity}],
            Equation, Text, CellTags -> {mytag:Two-Dimensional,
             mytag:Finite Element
              Method, mytag:Capillarity}]}, Open]]}, FrontEndVersion ->

                5.2 for Macintosh, ScreenRectangle -> {{0,
          1280}, {0,
            964}}, WindowToolbars -> EditBar, WindowSize -> {764, 761},

            WindowMargins -> {{
              Automatic, 252}, {70, Automatic}}, CellLabelAutoDelete ->

I Use Save=>Save As Special=>Notebook Expression

and  I save it as myTest.m

Then I open up a new notebook

and import that notebook expression using

data = Import["/Users/brian/Desktop/myTest.m"]

Now I use a rule to change the cell structure of the notebook using

data2 = data /.
  Cell[X_String, "
    Text", CellTags -> List[x__]] :> Sequence[Cell[RowBox[{x}], "Text",

          TextAlignment -> Left], Cell[X, "Text"]]

Then I creat a new notebook using


which I can then save as TeX file. The CellTags entries will now be
visible. There are more ways to embelish the CellTags by using an
approppriate cell structure.

Hope this helps or at least gives you some ideas,
