Generally, it's best if you look around in this thread. It is one of the best resources for Tau words. There are no direct translations for the words you are looking for. With a little bit of imagination, however, it's fairly easy to patch together something close enough.

Tank: It's worthy to note that the Tau tanks aren't referred to as "tanks" per se, but rather as "gunships" going off this, I think it would be safe to call a Tau tank a Ka'leath- literally a "strike-ship"

Vengeance: Co’cha Sio't literally, it would translate as "wrong-purposed premeditated aggression". Which is how I think how most Tau would feel about vengeance.

For "Slayer" I'd try Korst'la. It means “Death being” or “Reaper”, and is probably the closest thing to a direct translation that's out there.
