comment Easiest way to have Lightroom destructively replace RAW files with TIFF files?
here's a good overview of the difference between RAW and JPEG; what they say about JPEG is relevant to TIFF as well. Effectively, the shift to JPEG or TIFF throws out a large hunk of data, and once its gone, it's gone, so you can't work as much on the image without ruining it.

comment Easiest way to have Lightroom destructively replace RAW files with TIFF files?
I would recommend against this. You lose a lot of processing capability with a TIFF vs. the Raw image, and so you're locking yourself into the image where you might want to revisit and reprocess it again later. With a TIFF, those options are very limited.

Actually using the software not good enough? Well, Piet Van Den Eynde (author of various craft and vision books on Lightroom) said as much in his lecture at Created Image 2 in Vancouver in 2014 (video here, not free: craftandvision.com/collections/all/products/…) -- his is well over 100K images. also some good info on this here: mosaicarchive.com/2014/02/26/…
