You can never tribute something you don't control unless the effect specifically lets you.

So Soul Exchange, Trap Eater, Lava Golem are all examples of something that allow you to tribute your opponent's cards, and they all clearly say so.

But if there is no text allowing it, then by default, it can only be a card you control, ie, something on your side of the field.

Can you put a set monster up for tribute?

You can tribute a monster when an effect instructs you to, or you need to do so as a cost. So you can tribute a monster for a tribute summon only in your own main phases, when there is no chain in progress. You can however tribute a monster for one of Enemy Controller's effects at Spell Speed 2, in either player's turn, in any phase.

Can you Tribute monsters on your opponents turn?

Yes. If the tribute is for a Tribute Summon, then you can't attack with any monster again afterwards, since this Summon will occur in Main Phase 2. If the tribute is for a card effect and resolves during the Battle Phase, then you can attack again with another monster, since it would still be the Battle Phase.

Can you tribute blazewing butterfly on your opponents turn?

If you mean for its own effect, then no. It is an Ignition Effect so can only be activated in your own main phases.

Can you tribute the same turn during a normal summon?

You can definitely tribute a monster on the same turn as a Normal Summon, ie, you can normal summon Exiled Force and tribute it for its effect. What you can't do is tribute it for a Tribute Summon because this is another Normal Summon, you can't perform two in a turn unless an effect allows you to do so. But you can tribute that monster for other things, like an activation cost or for a special summon.
