I assume she's making less than minimum wage but, puts up with assholes like that guy all day with a smile on her face.
It's not her fault the food service industry is set up this way, she's just trying to put food on her own table. It's customary in America to tip for good service, like it or not
1.) I didn't read the OP thoroughly...the tip was part of the bill, so yeah, he needs to pay that.
2.) In the case of a normal tip, nobody is required to tip anything. Should they tip? In my opinion, sure, if the service was good. However, if they choose not to then that is their choice.
3.) It's customary, but not a law.
