A gerund is taking the alphabetical structure of a verb in the continuous tense as in verb in present tense + ING yet it remains a noun as a grammatical structure . In your examples they are all verbs in active and passive voice , mentioning the active person Tom will not change anything to the structure .

Those are all verbs not gerunds !

As Cherry says, no sign of a gerund in any of these. That would be something like "Following us is scary". The 3rd sentence is correct but would probably be more natural in active voice: "I think Tom is following us".
