The TFTP option is a string, not an ip address.
The correct syntax needs quotes.
From dnsmasq manual:
To force a literal string, use quotes. For instance when using option 66 to send a literal IP address as TFTP server name, it is necessary to do --dhcp-option=66,"184.108.40.206"

If you have a tftp server in your lan, set it's ip in dhcp advanced options and check that your devices can boot.
Another option is to capture traffic on the dhcp server to check for the right option.
tcpdump -nn -p -i eth0 -s 1500 -v ether host 08:00:27:xx:xx:xx
where eth0 is the dhcp interface and 08:00:27... is the mac address of the dhcp client.
On the client, I used "dhclient -v -d enp0s3" to obtain the ip.
The packet captured in the server has the following lines:
Client-Ethernet-Address 08:00:27:xx:xx:xx sname "220.127.116.11"
where 18.104.22.168 is the tftp server I put in the dhcp page.

Set DHCP on a blue interface, with TFTP server option "192.168.1.2".
[root@test1 cgp]# grep 192.168.1.2 /etc/dnsmasq.conf dhcp-option=eth3,66,192.168.1.2 # TFTP
[root@test1 cgp]# grep 192.168.1.2 /etc/dnsmasq.conf dhcp-option=eth3,option:tftp-server,"192.168.1.2"
