The police officer had already given me my ticket at the scene and a week later he sends me another one in the mail for tinted windows. Is that legal?
Yes, as long as he observed the violation during the initial stop. Make sure it's an amendment to your original citation (instand of a replacement). Try to take care of them both at the same time, or hire an attorney to do it for you.

Yes- it sounds like a Notice of Correction and must be related to initial stop.
Yes it is legal. Call the court and see if he amended to just the tinted windows charge or if the failure to stop is still being alleged.
