      Yes, but the magic & divination in LOTR are in a secondary world.  If you will read the LETTERS, you will see that JRRT held that this made a difference.  There is a long letter of his countering a reader's objection to his having introduced reincarnation into his mythos when Christianity by and large (and expecially Roman Catholicism) has utterly rejected it.

      I don't pretend to guess what JRRT would think of the Tarot, but there is plenty of divination and magic in LotR, so I can't assume he would object to Tarot and a card game being inspired by his work.
