Well if you know for sure that the tierod is bad then replace it. I don't think that it is going to cure your problem but at least you know the tie rod is fixed. After you replace the tie rod check it again. You may have to tear the front hubs down and check the bearings. Just because they are tight doesn't mean that they are not pitted or worn in the races.

It could also be a CV joint in the axle.

Tie rod ends will not make a bearing type noise. If it is more of a clicking than a whine it is probably an axle.

Agreed with Chet, Clicking is usually the axle / cv joint.
I have seen the brakes / wheel bearing make the bad bearing sound when turning the wheel also.JMO

Fix the tie-rod as stated then go from there.IMHO
