But when I try it from Tortoise I get the error, "Failed to add file <filename>: object of the same name already exists." Bottom line is that the functionality exists, I just have something set up improperly. Still feeling my way around and bumping into walls.

That means that a file of that name already exists, but that file was
not checked out of the repository (you created the file yourself or
copied it in from elsewhere), so SVN does not know what state it is in.
  Remove the relevant file from your working copy and update again.
