Tortoise Diff should be set up to deal with Word documents automatically. If you go into TortoiseSVN->Settings->Diff Viewer->Advanced, you'll see lots of entries for .doc? files with an entry similar to the following:
To diff a Word document (or just about any other) against what's in the repository, simply right-click and select TortoiseSVN->Diff. Similarly, if you "Show Log" on any file you can just select two versions and click on "Compare Revisions" from the right-click menu. In either case, the two versions will show up in a Microsoft Word diff view.

Comments in Word don't appear in the main body text. They're a separate type of element.
> Is there a way to make word show/track changes for the docs
That's a bigger question and would probably involve writing a macro to run under Word (and then enabling it for each document).
> Besides, "track changes" would work without subversion
Right, and correct.
> ps. I read in tortoise docs about "use the Revision Log
That's the "Show Log" option. Possibly this part of the docs needs to be clarified.

I hope I've helped.
