When I use MacVim normally and have multiple tabs open, it's easy to see which tab is active because it's much lighter than the others.

However, in fullscreen mode, they are all the lighter color and I can't see which is active.

Is there any setting I can change to make this more obvious?

No, there's no setting for that. You could file a bug, maybe. –  romainl Aug 14 '13 at 13:55

As @romainl pointed out there is no way to do that form within MacVim. However you may want to play around with the Mac OS X colour schemes which will change the colour of your active tab.

On Mountain Lion there is only blue and graphite: enter image description here

I would look around on the web for a third party plugin that provides you with some more themes.
