i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?
i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.

Remember when recording in 24-bits, you have 8 bits EXTRA over 16-bit recording, per voltage sample. This means that for each voltage step that would be recorded in a 16-bit recording, a 24-bit recording will take 256 steps! In other words, the fidelity is MUCH greater, so even if your levels seem low, that can be OK, since you have around 100 dB of headroom to play with, and can increase the signal many times with acceptable fidelity. What you DON'T want to do in digital recording is CLIP, which is a virtually unrecoverable fault in the recording.

This might seem simple, but just to check: you have switched off the monitor on the track when you go to playback? With track monitor engaged, you will not hear playback, but will continue to hear the live monitor.

Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.
