To continue making backup jobs after previous backup is moved to tape and existing backup files were deleted manually (not using retention policy settings), install Veeam B&R v7 patch #3
. You can install #4, since it`s superseded; but, read description patch#3 features. You need to set this registry key ForceCreateMissingVBK (DWORD) on your backup server. It is all described in the "Rotated Media" section in the link. Please read carefully.

You can not backup directly to a tape; but, you can use powershell to schedule a script that would trigger the backup to tape job and clean up the repository after.
