For replacing Description with Recently View products replace this code from catalog.xml

<block type="catalog/product_view_description" name="product.description" as="description" template="catalog/product/view/description.phtml">
    <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
    <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Description</value></action>
</block>

TO :

<block type="reports/product_viewed" name="product.description" as="description" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml">
    <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
    <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Description</value></action>
</block>

For Adding NEW TAB for Recently View products, Replace

<block type="catalog/product_view_description" name="product.description" as="description" template="catalog/product/view/description.phtml">
    <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
    <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Description</value></action>
</block>

WITH:

<block type="catalog/product_view_description" name="product.description" as="description" template="catalog/product/view/description.phtml">
    <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
    <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Description</value></action>
</block>
<block type="reports/product_viewed" name="product.recentview" as="recentview" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml">
    <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
    <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Recently View</value></action>
</block>

Just add below code after Description block in catalog.xml files

<block type="reports/product_viewed" name="Your_attribute_name" as="reportsproductviewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml">
    <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
    <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Your tab name</value></action>
