It should be "te veo" as "te" is used as both direct and indirect object.

"Tu" is a subject pronoun so cannot be used in that phrase.

In regard to your other question..... in spanish, it is common and acceptable to use the present tense to express the future, at times.

A very common phrase is to say..."nos vemos" (referring to a future encounter) but you will hear people sometimes say "nos veremos".
