what should the tone controls be set to (bass and treble)when playing movies in dolby digital or DTS ?
and what should these levels be set to when using a spl meter ?

Best place to start is tone controls at the midpoint. Standard reference level is 75db.

Idealy they should be flat... no gain, no attenuation.

My receiver doesn't even allow bass and treble settings to be changed while in DD, DTS or PLII mode. Only while in stereo can I adjust bass and treble.

Tone controls can also be used to compensate for acoustic problems in the room, although just two tone controls, bass and treble, are not enough for accuracy.

Still, I consider the inability to use tone controls as a deficiency, much as is the problem of being unable to set a TV to 4:3 aspect ratio for certain inputs.
