Both will be able to supply a WebMapService.
Use your mapserver for WMS 
 ... until you need a transactional Web Feature Service (WFS-T) which is not supported by mapserver.
You will need WFS-T only for edit vectordata (write-access) via Mapbender-Client, but not for your TIFs and not for any other read-access.

>From what i read, mapserver is faster for shapefile ....
Please ask this on mapserver-userlist.
This list intend to discuss absout Mapbender-Client only.

(Also your TIF-question is more a mapserver- but not a mapbender-problem.)

So you can put a gdaltindex on top.
Then insert this index into the mapfile instead of 50 single Tif-Files.
