I somehow missed this thread.

I have a (mostly) working code achieving the same thing in my personal
config. The code is below. Hope it can give you some more ideas.

I am using font-lock for tag alignment.

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (font-lock-add-keywords 'org-mode '(yant/org-align-tags) t)) 100)
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (add-to-list 'font-lock-extra-managed-props 'org-tag-aligned)))

(defun yant/org-align-tags (limit &optional force)
    "Align all the tags in org buffer."
      (when (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
	(while (re-search-forward "^\\*+ \\(.+?\\)\\([ \t]+\\)\\(:\\(?:[^ \n]+:\\)+\\)$" limit t)
	  (when (and (match-string 2)
		     (or force
			 (not (get-text-property (match-beginning 2) 'org-tag-aligned))))
              (put-text-property (match-beginning 2) (match-end 2) 'org-tag-aligned t)
	      (put-text-property (if (>= 2 (- (match-end 2) (match-beginning 2)))
				     (match-beginning 2)
				   ;; multiple whitespaces may mean that we are in process of typing
				   (1+ (match-beginning 2)))
				 (match-end 2)
				 `(space . (:align-to (- right
							 (,(+ 3 ;; no idea, but otherwise it is sometimes not enough
							      (string-display-pixel-width org-ellipsis)
							      (string-display-pixel-width (or (match-string 3)

(defun string-display-pixel-width (string &optional mode)
  "Calculate pixel width of STRING.
Optional MODE specifies major mode used for display."
      (setf (buffer-string) string))
    (when (fboundp mode)
      (funcall mode)
    (if (get-buffer-window (current-buffer))
	(car (window-text-pixel-size nil (line-beginning-position) (point)))
      (set-window-buffer nil (current-buffer))
      (car (window-text-pixel-size nil (line-beginning-position) (point))))))
