Comment (by azizpoonawalla):

 Hmm, you are right, setting category base to "tags" and tag base to "tag"
 does work. In fact, setting both to "tags" also works, but setting both to
 "tag" does not work (I get a 404 for the category). There seems to be some
 innate collision of some kind.

 I may be wrong about this but it was my understanding that we could not
 have a tag and a category with the same name. So I don't see why it should
 matter that the permalink base is identical.
