How do I avoid tear-out when using the router?

You do have to make sure there is no micro bevel on the underside/free angle of the blade. Make sure to work your way down incrementally, very gradually, and take grain direction into consideration.

How do I sharpen pointed blades?

There is no easy way to sharpen a pointer router bit. If you have them, you could use a small diamond paddle, otherwise make some small sandpaper ones such as used in the knife sharpening video here, and clamp the cutter in a vice to get at it. You could still polish out the bottom on diamond stones as in the other cutter.
