I'm assuming that the tag ID will correspond to the order in which the
tag was typed, so you can request tags ordered by ID.  Unfortunately,
although wp_tag_cloud() accepts an orderby argument, it overrides it.
So you'll have to use a callback function on the "get_tags" function,
as in the following example, to do what you want:

add_filter('get_tags', create_function('$t', 'return get_terms(
"post_tag", array("orderby" => "id") );'));
