Shortcoming re-confirmed under Debian 7 x86_64 using:

v4.2.8.2 Build ID: 48d50dbfc06349262c9d50868e5c1f630a573ebd
v4.3.4.1 Build ID: bc356b2f991740509f321d70e4512a6a54c5f243

Insert > Indexes and Tables > Indexes and Tables... > Entries tab > Structure and Formatting section > Structure list > click [T] tab entry > "Tab stop position" and "Align right" are the only (mutually exclusive) sub-options. It would be better to simply have the usual (ruler) tab icon button to cycle through via clicking, rather than an "Align right" option.

Created attachment 123860 [details]
Test document

Attached is a test document that shows the problem. See description in the document: three TOCs are build as example and a "pseudo TOC" shows how TOC should look like.

There are 2 issues here, if I understood well: 

1. Enhancement request from description to change default TOC to be: 
("index link“), “tab stop” right aligned (like 0,5cm), “chapter number”, “tab stop” left aligned (like 1cm), “chapter name entry”, “tab stop” right aligned (like 17cm), “page number”, ("end").
Current LO default is: 
"index link“, “chapter number”, “chapter name entry”, “tab stop” right aligned, “page number”, "end".
I change the title here to:
Change default TOC entries to include tabstops before and after "Chapter number" entry
This request needs to be evaluated for benefit it would yield. 

2. Bug from title and attachment that "tabstops on TOC  are no fully functional (do not support right and middle alignment)".
That's not correct description, because they do support alignment, albeit not properly. This is a separate issue and I'll See Also that.
