I would also like to note that I've attempted to add a tab leader in several documents now, all with the same result.
Yes. Same result.
I have tried restarting the app and my computer, deleting the app preferences, uninstalling and reinstalling InDesign, and creating the tab leader as a paragraph style rather than using the tab window. No matter what I do, as soon as I type something in the leader box InDesign freezes. I am thinking this is a genuine bug.

Could you please try the workflow again after unchecked the 'Type Contextual Controls' at the bottom of the Advanced Type preference.
Navigate to Preference->Advance Type -> Type Contextual Controls and disable the preference “show for Character Alternates, Fractions, Ordinals and Ligatures”
Let us know if this makes any difference.
It seems this problem affects (some?) Mac system(s) only? Couldn't recreate it on Win10, ID CC 2017 (both 64-bit). Tab leaders work as expected here, even with 'Type Contextual Controls' On.
To tell the truth, I still can't recreate other 'confirmed bugs', too. Like this one in the neighboring thread.
Damn thing just doesn't agree to crash or do something kinky...
However, still testing, all serious jobs - on tried and true Win7, CS6.
This fixed the problem. Thank you!
This worked for me on Windows 7. Thanks!
Indesign crashed every time i tried to work in a text box with tabulated text.
It helped to unmark the "type contextual controls".
