Well, it seems to me that it works exactly the same way in Scribus. Select 
your text frame, open the Properties Palette (F2) and go to the "Shape" tab. 
There you'll find a button called "Tabulators" which offers what you need. 

Once the tab stops are set, you'll see them in the horizontal rulers, at least 
when you're in the editing mode for the text frame. You can move them with 
the left mouse button and change the alignment with the right one.
