Recently purchased EFT Dongle and was able to perform a backup that pulled WhatsApp, Facebook, etc. Problem is, I am at a lose as to what I should do next with the tar file? Is there a tool that I can import it to? Cellebrite? XRY?

Samsung G550T1 with Android 6.0.1 March 2017 Security Patch

But sadly, as previously reported, it just backed up the apks for the apps and not the actual messages included within.

You can use this tool WhatsApp-Key-DB-Extractor to backup WhatsApp databases and messages. This tool will downgrade your WhatsApp verison, and make backup. Then tool will restore your version.
Use with care. It can crash untill WhatsApp will be restored, in that case you will need to restore it manually. Try it at dummy phone first.
