I tried

let mapleader = "<Tab>"

and

let mapleader = "Tab"

but neither worked. Right now instead of having

nnoremap <Leader>whatever ...<CR>

I have

nnoremap <Tab>whatever ...<CR>

But I would really like to use <Leader>. Any suggestions?

Try:

:let mapleader = "\<tab>"

See:

:help expr-quote

Specifically the end of the table in the help entry.
