Do they actually tint windows on the outside?

The reason you're asked not to wash the car after having tints applied is that the sudden temperature change of hosing the car down with cold water can effect the curing process of the tint on the other side.
If the water spot is on the inside then you shouldn't need a great deal of effort to get it off. I found on my tints that a decent glass cleaner was sufficient (don't use AG Glass Polish though or anything else with ammonia in it). If it's on the outside then try any of the methods that have already been suggested.

As far as water spots on the glass, a quick pass with a mild polish works great for me, followed by a layer of wax or sealant. I don't put wax on the windshield.
Constantly cleaning with ammonia-based cleaners will cause the innermost layer of the film (the scratch-resistant layer) to dry out and it will start flaking like dandruff. Periodic cleaning with ammonia goods is fine.
Vehicles with factory privacy glass offer no benefits other than a little shade. There is no heat reduction, no UV protection, and in the event of an accident, the glass will shatter and fly everywhere. Aftermarket window film will reduce the heat coming through the glass (it's still going to be hot in your car if it's been sitting outside all afternoon), it will keep out 99%+ of UV rays, and it will keep the glass from cutting you like mad Ginsu salesman in a colllision.
