Hard to say.  Could be acne/blackheads.  Have you tried washing the tail daily or cleaning it with acne pads?

Because ferrets produce so much natural oils in their fur, blackheads are a very common appearance, especially on the tail.  They appear as little dots that vary in colour from a light rusty color, to absolute black.  Not really a problem.  A very soft soap can be used, but really there's no need to try and treat them.
