I am using Winedt 7.1 and learning TikZ and I am thinking about to add the commands to the keyword.ini, in the help they mentioned, adding to many keywords may affect the performance. Is there a possibility that the TikZ-Commands are only highlighted inside a tikzpicture environment?

As far as I know, it is not possible to add environment-specific keywords in WinEdt.

Anyway, unless you have a very old computer and you add thousands of keywords, you will not see any particular slowdown in WinEdt's performance.
