I would be grateful if you could post a similar MSH2 example for a tetrahedron grid, with 1 data field assigned on nodes and another one assigned on cell centers...

That's correct. Here is a simple MSH2 example with 2 quads, with values [1 0 0, 2 0 0, 3 0 0] and [1 0.1 0.1, 0.1 2 0.1, 0.1 0.1 3]:
$MeshFormat
2.0 0 8
$EndMeshFormat
$Nodes
6
1 0.0 0.0 0.0
2 0.1 0.0 0.0
3 0.1 0.3 0.0
4 0.0 0.3 0.0
5 0.0 0.15 0.0
6 0.1 0.15 0.0
$EndNodes
$Elements
2
1000 3 2 6 100 1 2 6 5
1001 3 2 6 100 5 6 3 4
$EndElements
$ElementData
1
"stress field per element"
1
0.
3
0
9
2
1000 1 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 3
1001 1 0.1 0.1 0.1 2 0.1 0.1 0.1 3
$EndElementData
PS: the next release will improve the computation of the min/max for tensor fields. (Currently the min/max is computed using the default representation for tensors, i.e. Von-Mises. The next release will take the tensor visualization mode into account when explicitly requesting the calculation of min/max.)
