I suspect you will need to take your dog to the veterinarian.  They will try to remove the ticks and if unsuccessful your dog may need to be sedated for this procedure.  The tongue is an uncommon site for tick attachment so I would want to make sure nothing more serious is on the tongue.
I do not think you will be able to apply Vaseline to the tongue and your dog will swallow it within seconds of application.
When removing ticks from you dog wear gloves; ticks can carry diseases that affect people too.
