|Couple of reasons for wilting leaves.
1. Overwatering causes leaves turns yellow and droop. Tomato plants requires very less watering. Alternate day watering is also sufficient in hot summer days.
2. Overfertilizer also makes leaves wilted and tips curled as they cannot handle high nutrients.
3. Another possibility is while you were planting your tomato sapplings the plant undergone transplant shock.
