I'm not quite certain what you're looking for. A search for "tcp ping"
reveals several programs that might be able to do what you need.
Alternatively, you could easily take one of them of UDP ping monitors
and modify it to use TCP instead.

Do you want this to monitor connection quality between two points? There
are more complete programs that can do that. Perhaps that's what you're
looking for instead.
