Cream Cheese with amaretto will not taste like tiramisu even if using the strongest coffee. It will usually taste like a flavored cheesecake. The key to making tiramisu is the use of mascarpone cheese, a mild flavored cheese that does not take over whatever it is used with. Marsala, brandy or rum are suitable but not amaretto, Kahlua or other coffee flavored liqueurs. These will take the dessert in other directions. The result might share the appearance or texture of tiramisu and may taste quite good, however, the flavor will not resemble tiramisu.
