You can use a converter in your tooltip templates in the same way as you would use a converter in any other WPF scenario

1) Add an xml namespace to the root node (Page/Window/etc.), if the converter is in the same assembly as the executable you can omit the assembly part

2) Add the converter to a resource dictionary in your template

3) Instantiate the converter in the binding.
