Unfortunately there seems no way to make VS display formatted text 
within it's tooltips. I guess other language services are reimplementing 
them to achieve that.

I have recently added some simple Ddoc replacements here: 

Some more could be added, but only text, so for example $(B text) can be 
converted to *text*. (I assume you have added the html tags yourself and 
have not used the corresponding Ddoc macros).
