It seems that the file is corrupted and is not TIFF-format compliant. When you open and save it using ImageJ (for example), it is likely that this latter formats it correctly and fills in the Tag and ImageDescription fields which seem to be missing in your original file.
A workaround would be to use the MATLAB class function TIFF which is MATLAB's getaway to LibTiff libraries.
Here is simple example:
T = Tiff('myImage.tiff');
I = read(T);
