GitHub for Mac OS X is cool software. I can do a lot of cool things with it (history, branches, etc) - but I don't know how to create tags. Can I do this with the GUI?

Both in their announcement and in the help section, this (tag) doesn't seem to be available (at the time of the writing of this answer).

That means GitHub for Mac doesn't manage yet the tags namespace (refs/tags), and that you need to tag manually, and then git push --tags to GitHub also manually.
