Usually when I try to create a document using the Tufte-latex classes, which table of contents could extents in more than one page, I find with the trouble of the composition of the table of contents.

My MWE could be:

\PassOptionsToPackage{usenames,dvipsnames,table}{xcolor}
\documentclass[symmetric,marginals=raggedouter]{tufte-book}
\usepackage{etex}
\usepackage[TS1,T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenx}
\usepackage[spanish,activeacute,mexico]{babel}
\usepackage[sc,osf]{mathpazo}
\usepackage{epigraph}
\usepackage[caption=false]{subfig}
\usepackage{graphicx,tikz,pgfplots}
\graphicspath{{./imagen/}}
\usepackage[colorinlistoftodos,spanish,textsize=footnotesize]{todonotes}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\clubpenalty=10000
\widowpenalty=10000

\parskip0.4\baselineskip

\setcounter{tocdepth}{1}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{1}

\author{Me}
\title{The four agreements}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter

I need to create well the table of contets, in the configuration I show is impossible. I'm using TeXLive 2013 updated on Ubuntu 14.04.

• Your MWE works fine for me but you may want to change \titlepage to \maketitle. – lhf Jun 19 '14 at 10:14
• Hahahahaha that's right, was \maketitle' was a mistake mine, but it doesn't fix the trouble with the table of contents. – Aradnix Jun 20 '14 at 17:07
• Can you please explain what the problem is? I don't seem to see any misalignment in the ToC. Could you please explain in more detail where the problem is and what is the desired result? – Gonzalo Medina Jun 20 '14 at 21:37
• Sure, the problem is the way the compilation creates an index when I try to use the option symmetric' because the first line of the second page of the index appear misaligned as in the picture I linked before. I can't find the source or the way to avoid it. When I don't use symmetric' I have not those mistakes. – Aradnix Jun 20 '14 at 21:53
• Are there any news here? A lot of time went by since the question was posted. – Johannes_B Dec 19 '15 at 17:16

While I don't know how to make the ToC symmetric, I found adding a \null to the TOC just before the sectional heading that's misaligned on the second page makes it aligned again:
\addtocontents{toc}{\null}

Did you happen to enclose the \tableofcontents command inside a fullwidth environment? (Not sure if you take that into account in your MWE)? There seems to be a compatibility issue with the Tufte-book symmetric option and the fullwidth environment, but removing the fullwidth` environment did it for me. It might be worth looking into other potential codes that could destablelize Tufte-book default alignments as well.
