This could be a significant problem; see your doctor and get to the bottom of it.

What causes liver calcium deposits and do they hint at an underlying illness?

Uncommon: One must distinguish calcium deposits in the liver (not common) from deposits in the blood vessels going into the liver (rare), or calcium in the gallbladder (common). Depending on the clinical scenario, deposits in the liver can occur in certain infections and tumors. Diabetes and kidney failure are risks for calcium in the vessels, while gallstones often contain calcium.

Can calcium deposits form in the tongue? My friend has little hard rocks coming out of the side and tip of the tongue.

??, calculus?: I have never seen or heard of calcium deposits forming in the tongue. Two thoughts come to mind. The less likely one is small calculi coming from the ducts of the submandibular salivary gland. The more likely scenario is pieces of calculus dislodging from the teeth. Have your friend see a dentist to find out which one it is.
