Certainly not from THAT tape drive!
The PC (5150) tape interface (DIN-5 next to keyboard connector), is an
AUDIO interface, not digital, and not DC-37 (floppy drive connector)!

Although IBM (U.S.) never sold a cable for connecting, the pinout is close
enough to that of the TRS-80 to be able to use Radio Shacks cable.
