Well, in your particular case, you could do something like

(Assuming HEAD is currently revision N, which is the revision in which
you deleted all the tags:)

$ svn rm URL-to-tags-dirs
Committed revision N+1.

$ svn cp -r N-1 URL-to-tags-dir URL-to-tags-dir
Committed revision N+2.

... and now revisions N+2 and N-1 will look the same.
