TB: I would certainly worry about tb. Other possibilities include pneumonia, pulmonic abscess, bronchiectasis, empyema or other deep seated pulmonary infection (e.G fungal, viral, etc). He needs to be evaluated.

Complication of TB?: Given that your friend is taking TB medicine, i assume that he's being treated for tb, either active or inactive. Given his chest pain and fever he should be evaluated for a complication of TB such as abscess around the lung or drug resistant tb. He should, if possible, get seen and examined, and possibly get a chest x-ray as well.
