if the employee is tipped in cash, it is not counted in their pay and thus is not included in wages for income tax purposes

This may also be a state-by-state things but when I was waitressing you had to declare your tips (both cash and credit card) to the restaurant on a weekly basis and they were included in your taxes.  If you didn't declare them  the restaurant was supposed to assume a specific percentage, just under what the standard tip was at the time.

Frankly, I do not really care about my server's motivation, whether I am just a tip or whether they're taking pride in their job performance.  I only care about the end result - good service.
