Poorguy concrete does not deteriorate like asphalt shingles - which you know. A tile roof - concrete or clay can be improperly installed resulting leaks. I can only think of two ways for leaks to happen. #1 Individual tiles can break. #2. Since tile roof depend on gravity for leak protection, wind in the correct direction and velocity can drive water up hill so to speak between tiles.

I am not aware of anyway to predict either of these conditions.
