It sounds possible to me given that Tunisia was unstable in recent years.

The UAE, for security reasons, will become more strict or fussy about issuing visas to citizens of countries where there are security issues, or where the political environment is unstable, or if the UAE thinks that the system for issuing passports is insecure, and other similar reasons.

Since I'm not the UAE security or immigration authority, I can't answer your question with certainty. You could try contacting the immigration department but if it's a security issue, they might not tell you.

Better would be to ask a travel agent who frequently deals with Tunisians applying for Dubai visas.

Or a UAE airline which flies to Tunisia - I think Emirates do, not sure about Etihad, Air Arabia, or FlyDubai. Maybe Air Arabia from their Morocco base?

If the UAE airlines are flying to Tunisia then I think it's a good sign that in principle the UAE is still issuing tourist visas to Tunisians. They might take more time to process visa applications to filter out any possible undesirable visitors.
