When I press C-c a M and search for a certain tag, I get a todo list of all open tasks for this specific tag.

Is it now possible to do a regular expression search similar to the sparse-tree regular expression search, for example:

+DEADLINE<"<today>"

?

Somehow it does not work for me, when i try that.

Yes, it works, at least with org 9.1.9, but it can be slow on large and/or many files.

For example, with the x.org file

** TODO one
   DEADLINE: <2018-04-10 Tue>
** TODO two
   DEADLINE: <2018-04-09 Mon>

as current buffer and today <2018-04-09>, the command C-c a < M (restricting the search to the current buffer) gives

Headlines with TAGS match: DEADLINE="<today>"
Press ‘C-u r’ to search again with new search string
  x:          TODO two

or

Headlines with TAGS match: +DEADLINE>"<today>"
Press ‘C-u r’ to search again with new search string
  x:          TODO one

depending on which of those two match strings you enter.
