My 80's kitchen cabinets are very ugly and outdated. They have no handles and they are covered mainly with this ugly beige formica (I think that is what that material is) Instead of simply painting them or covering them with wallpaper? Could I rip the formica off and possibly tile the fronts? Has it ever been done and how would it look if done tastefully?

I doubt that you would have much left after ripping formica off the doors and faces. They would be coming apart by then. Adding the weight of tile to doorr hinges that are sized for the current doors is not a good idea eiother if you want the hinges to continue working.
You should check into refacing services that can make a kitchen look new if the boxes are in decent shape.
