Sorry, but I dont know the app well enough for any workarounds, but I'm pretty sure it doesnt index GrayScale metadata??
You could create a list of your GrayScale .tiff's for everything to read.. That'd give you something to filter them by.

If you have exiftool, the command would be like:
exiftool -r -q -ext tiff -ext tif -if "$FileType eq 'TIFF' and $PhotometricInterpretation#<2" -p \"$FilePath\" C:/DirPath >MyGrayScales.txt

Just edit C:\DirPath to your main directory, and exiftool would recursively create the file-list (as MyGrayScales.txt).
You would then need to edit MyGrayScales.txt by simply putting filename on Line1 all by itself.
Then everything could use it as one of its file-lists (Tools/Options/FileLists/Add, & then later File/OpenFileList).

Cheers.
