Once I have chosen a hue, how can I create a range of tints, shades and shadows?

    I think you may need to be more specific. Are you creating like a color palette or something... or like just trying to figure out how to mix colors?

You can't do it with GIMP in automatically way.
You can use some online tools or third party plugins.

Try Color Hexa ( http://www.colorhexa.com/ ), put your color in the search input and it returns color schemes, alternatives, shades and tints, tones and other useful related info.
Then you can create your palette in GIMP.
