Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello Everybody,

is it possible to create a map on a lower zoom level zhan zhe lowest that exists (wich seems to be around 500m lenghth on a big screen)... but without the names of the descriptive tags getting pixeled...

e.g. if you zoom down to 1m on 1m you will only see a pixeled part of a tag. Can this tag be done in vector so the user is still able to read it properly...

Thanks in advance! Gino

You could setup your own slippy map configured to allow higher zooms, or you could use some form of vector rendering. There are a few projects working on this, including mappbox and kothic js.
