The command ls /dev/tty works for me:

$ ls -l /dev/tty
crw--w---- 1 jeremyb Domain Users 5, 0 Mar 17 08:43 /dev/tty

Even if the path you attempted to use didn't exist, you should have got
/some/ response:

$ ls /dev/nonexistent
ls: cannot access /dev/nonexistent: No such file or directory

Can you provide more details about what exactly happened when you tried
to run your command?
