You set the style.ToolTipText for the particular cell. You can do this in QueryCellInfo.
private void grid_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
	if(e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex > 0)
		e.Style.CellTipText = e.Style.FormattedText;//maybe .Text or some other string...

Hi, I need to set the tool tip at runtime when the user moves the mouse over each cell of the grid. The Text value of the cell should be set as tool tip for the corresponding cell. Thanks, Anna

Try it in PrepareViewStyleInfo. This worked for me.
private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	this.gridControl1[1,1].Text = "SomeText in Cell 1,1";
	this.gridControl1[2,1].Text = "SomeText in Cell 2,1";
	this.gridControl1[1,2].Text = "SomeText in Cell 1,2";
	this.gridControl1[2,2].Text = "SomeText in Cell 2,2";
	this.gridControl1.PrepareViewStyleInfo += new GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventHandler(gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo);

private void gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
	if(e.ColIndex > 0 && e.RowIndex > 0)
		e.Style.CellTipText = e.Style.Text;
