Another reason batsmen will tap on the pitch is to compact the pitch a little where the ball has bounced erratically in the hope of settling it down and restoring more normal bounce. They will also do it to repair arears where a mini divit has occurred.
Batsman generally would like to check the bounce the pitch has to offer. By tapping the pitch on the probable length the bowler would bowl, the batsman can anticipate the degree of bounce the bowler can produce with his deliveries.
