The most basic form of Tannaka duality goes as follows:
Given a $k$-coalgebra $C$, we can construct its category of finite dimensional comodules ("representations"), which carries a (faithful, exact) functor to the category of finite dimensional vector spaces. On the other hand, given a $k$-linear abelian category equipped with a functor (the "fiber functor") to the category of finite dimensional vector spaces, we can construct a (not necessarily finite dimensional) $k$-coalgebra using a certain coend formula. Tannaka duality says that these two functors give an adjunction between the category of $k$-coalgebras and the 2-category of $k$-linear abelian categories equipped with a fiber functor. The counit of this adjunction is an isomorphism (so that we can reconstruct the coalgebra from its category of representations), and the unit of this adjunction is an equivalence precisely when we restrict to categories for which the fiber functor is faithful and exact (so that we can recognize such categories and fiber functors as being the ones that are categories of representations).
Note that the above result is entirely trivial (i.e., follows from the Yoneda lemma) if we take the category of not-necessarily finite dimensional comodules or require that our coalgebras be finite dimensional. On the other hand, the above result is entirely false if we replace coalgebras and comodules with algebras and modules. (Exercise: Find a nontrivial algebra that has no nontrivial finite dimensional modules. It's pretty easy!)
The adjunction I described can be "souped up" to a monoidal adjunction to handle representations of bialgebras; the algebra structure corresponds to the monoidal structure on the category. But the same caveats apply, so the theorem you state about monoidal categories is either trivial or wrong for the above reasons. The "correct" statement of monoidal Tannaka duality (and I believe more or less the one stated by Deligne) involves on the one side commutative Hopf algebras and on the other side symmetric monoidal $k$-linear abelian categories equipped with a faithful, exact, symmetric monoidal functor to finite-dimensional vector spaces. This is just a symmetric monoidal-ification of the basic form I give above.
