If you want to trap the moisture - yes

Tar paper will trap the moisture inside, with the possibility of mildew, mold, etc forming on the inside surfaces from the tar paper. The Tyvek will allow the house moisture to breathe through and not trap moisture inside. You would be better off with no wrap at all rather than have the tar paper.
