I am trying to add quadruplet notes in Tuxguitar, and while the sidebar has a button that adds triplets, quintuplets, etc., it doesn't seem to have the option to add quadruplets.

Is it possible to add them in Tuxguitar?

Quadruplets (and duplets) are not supported in TuxGuitar as of version 1.5. Support for tuplets is limited to sizes 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, and 12. See http://www.tuxguitar.com.ar/. (The screenshot below, showing part of the TuxGuitar feature list, was taken on 29 Oct 2021.)

While tuxguitar indeed doesn't support such notation, the rhythm (four notes adding up to three sixteen notes) can be notated accurately this way:
