Unable to use existing tag because system thinks I'm trying to create it?

The problem is that the r2-d2 tag itself does not exist. There is only a synonym pointing towards it, and trying to rewrite a synonym to a non-existent master tag simply doesn't work. At some point ...

What would happen if there were a cycle of tag synoynms?

That won't happen. If there is even a pending synonym from a to b, you can't suggest a synonym to a or from b. You'll get a message like this when you try: Interestingly enough, the message is wrong: ...

How can a tag exist as both an ordinary tag, and as a synonym?

Is there a way (e.g. with SEDE) to find questions with an existing tag that's been synonymized (but not merged) into another tag?

As far as I can tell, SEDE indeed can help with this - all you need is to find the questions with the specific tag. If the question still has the original tag, from SEDE you get the question with this ...

Merge the “Merge Tags” tool with the synonymous “Create Tag Synonym” tool

These two tools serve sliiiiiiiightly different purposes, so merging them would not be appropriate. However, the UI is now consistent across both tools, so I'm marking this status-completed.
