Assuming I've just defeated Tiamat in the Henne Mines (and therefore just received Lente's Tear in Eryut Village), how much more must I continue the story before I can possibly obtain Embroidered Tippets? In other words, from this point what are the minimum steps I must take before I can get them (and approximately how long should that take)?

Most places I've read say I can buy them in Old Archades, but I've also read that some people have gotten them earlier.

You can steal them from the Coeurls in the Tchita Uplands, which you must pass through just before the Sochen Cave Palace, which is just before Old Archades where you can buy them - but I do know I got one earlier than that, though I'm not sure where.

You can find Coeurls in Golmore Jungle as well, in the bottom-most part of the jungle just before you enter the Feywood, but you might not be able to handle the monsters in there after just coming out of the mines. (I probably got my first one there.) If you do go that route, keep in mind that clearing that area of monsters causes lots of undead to spawn, and they can slaughter you even if you had no trouble with the monsters that were present when you entered the area.
