I don't know if this is possible with \psplotTangent, but you can
accomplish the same thing another way. I wrote a package pst-
nodeExtras with an example showing how do do this. Take a look at the
documentation, looking for \psxline and \curvepnode.

To use, download and place in a location searched by TeX
http://math.ucsd.edu/~msharpe/pst-nodeExtras.tex
http://math.ucsd.edu/~msharpe/pst-nodeExtras.sty
Then \usepackage{pst-nodeExtras}
