Are they trying to make us think that a tube can alter a clipped waveform into a pure sine wave?

I take that to mean, parapharsed, "Can they take a pre-distorted, clipped waveform signal and change it back into the clean, pure sine wave that it once was?"

The answer to that is "no".

Granted, some circuits distort in a more graceful manner than others, which might be more pleasing to the ear, however you can't take a pre-distorted signal and truly fix it by passing it through such a circuit.
