How to use git hooks with Sourcetree Gitflow?

I am trying to trigger Git Hooks from the use of Sourcetree's embedded GitFlow functionality.

Basically, I am trying to do something very simple: run a git hook that tags the Master branch after a successful merge (using, for example, the "Release" in GitFlow).

What gives?
