I don't quite understand you here, but I think it's just because you're either a) not hitting hard enough or b) hitting with the wrong part of the finger.

The part I don't know about is the lower tone. I'm not sure what you mean by that. The only time I've ever had a lower tone is when tapping on an acoustic.

Don't bend the string when you pull off. That's the reason why. Creating a circular motion with your tapping finger when you tap/pull off bends the string slightly; just pull off at an angle instead (this also helps with pull-off speed/accuracy).

That'll make you look mad.

About the volume thing... maybe your hand/arm is resting on the string you're tapping. This would mute the string. But, like already stated, it could just be you need to tap harder.

Tap nearer to the actual metal part of the desired fret, check that you don't have a super high action, and make sure the reason that it sound weird isn't that you don't have your amp so quiet that you're hearing the section of the string between the nut and the fret ring out over the sound from the amp too.
