Is there any reason that software running in a VPS would be unable to drive 
a tape device, so a backup server could run in a VPS?

have you granted VPS access to the device in question
using vzctl set --devices option?

Never tried that, but looks like this is possible by giving a VE an
access to the device you want using --devnodes option of vzctl set.
