As far as I remember Peter Skilling is working on a concordance. Some 
years back I have ordered some of the books he published on this for our 
Tibetan Centre Hamburg library. I will try to find it for you when I go 
to the Centre on Thursday, unless somebody else can provide you with a 
more detailed information before.

With regard to Tibetan texts comparable to the Satipatthana Sutta I 
would expect more details from the following works:
