Tolkien used a literary device in lotr whereby he pretended as though he had found an ancient book called the Red Book of Westmarch which he translated and wrote down into the stories of what he published as the hobbit and lotr. The prologue is basically an introduction to what he was able to "learn" from this book about Hobbits and their culture. Therefore since he comments that it's most likely tobacco, that may as well mean that it was. Furthermore, Tolkien was an avid smoker and so this also points towards tobacco. Also, Tolkien really didn't like how hippy culture picked up his book and made it a part of the movement.
Since he didn't like this group, I have a hard time imagining that he would've had his characters smoking the same thing as hippies. This quote from Tolkien is appropriate when these types of things (continuously) are brought up regarding pipe-weed: "Many young Americans are involved in the stories in a way that I'm not. Here's the citation that most people usually use in this argument: "Which they called Pipe-Weed or Leaf, a variety probably of Nicotiana" Tolkien was very obviously trying to draw a connection between pipeweed and tobacco here, in the usage of "Nicotiana" (or Nicotine) as a primary ingredient. That being said, many use the "probably" in that sentence as an argument that it could be something else. So here's a second, less ambiguous quote: "But first- if you have finished eating- you shall fill your pipes and light up. And then for a little while we can pretend that we are all back safe at Bree again, or in Rivendell." He produced a small leather bag full of tobacco . "as fine a pipe-weed as you could wish for, and quite unspoilt. Gimli took some and rubbed it in his palms and sniffed it. "My dear Gimli, it is Longbottom Leaf!" - Flotsam and Jetsam. Pipe-weed was a plant of Middle-earth, in particular grown and enjoyed much by the hobbits of the Shire, to whom it was first introduced by Tobold Hornblower. It was first grown in the Shire by Tobold Hornblower in Longbottom around SR 1070 (the year 2670 of the Third Age). Despite its foreign origins, the hobbits were the first to use it for smoking. Pipe-weed production became a major industry in the Shire, especially in the south.  The same plant was known among the Dúnedain as sweet galenas for its fragrance. In Gondor, it was known as Westman's-weed , and grew there as a wild plant, appreciated most for its sweet-scented flowers. The colloquial name was in reference to its origins: it was apparently brought to Middle-earth by Númenóreans in the Second Age.  Popular hobbit varieties of pipe-weed soon included Longbottom Leaf, Old Toby (named after Tobold Hornblower and revered by Bilbo Baggins), Southern Star, and Southlinch, which was grown in Bree. Merry (of Peter Jackson's films) smoking his pipe-weed. The Wizard Gandalf learned to smoke pipe-weed from the Hobbits and was known to blow elaborate smoke-rings. Saruman initially criticized him for this, but eventually took up smoking himself. After the destruction of Isengard, pipe-weed was found among its stores, but the hobbits Merry and Pippin failed to realized until later the implications of the discovery of Saruman's commerce with the Shire.
