You can configure outline mode to do this, sort of. Put this in
.emacs. Instead of <tab> as you suggested, use C-left / C-right.
This way it shows / hides each function clause as a separate item, but
you probably want to treat the complete function as one entity. I'm
sure it is doable...
(defun show-onelevel ()
"show entry and children in outline mode"
(defun my-outline-bindings ()
"sets shortcut bindings for outline minor mode"
(local-set-key [C-up] 'outline-previous-visible-heading)
(local-set-key [C-down] 'outline-next-visible-heading)
(local-set-key [C-left] 'hide-subtree)
(local-set-key [C-right] 'show-onelevel))
(concat "^-?" erlang-atom-regexp "\\s *("))))
