So the file is in debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man1/ and not in ..

... usr/share/man/man1/ (dh_installman does not check debian/tmp/ - why
should it do so?). You can easily solve your problem by adding

usr/share/man/man1

(the whole directory or the files you need) to the dh_install call.
However, please also run dh_installman (without arguments/debhelper
files). It is more than an installer for manual pages. See its own
manual page.
