Can you try checking the lightning-helptext I think this tag would help in your context.

<lightning-helptext icon-name="utility:salesforce1" content="Full text explanation of feature"></lightning-helptext>

You can use the tag as above and for documentation please find it in the below link:

  • I tried the same and I was able to get the tooltip but unfortunately I was not able to find any such implementation regarding the helptext. – Anutej May 27 '20 at 11:31
