Page 275 of "Troubleshooting Oracle Performance" states that you will need:

* create any sql profile
* drop any sql profile
* alter any sql profile

In 11g, just the following is needed:
* administer sql management object

Side note: make certain that you have an appropriate license to access the SQL Tuning Advisor (uses dbms_sqltune).
