If you wrap your house in Tyvek, you will seal it against air infiltration because the Tyvek is one continuous sheet, not several small rolls overlapped like tar paper would be. Also, the seams in the house wrap(although very few) will be sealed with special tape.

I've never used cedar shingles, so I don't know if you need to use tar paper for some other reason, but I would put the Tyvek on first.
