IMO it's a phase. Toddlers love to dump. Maybe give him okay things to dump. I like to set up my boy at the kitchen counter on his stool (it has sides so is safe) with a tub of beans and lentils, a scoop, and some smaller plastic bowls. He loves to dump, scoop and pour from one container to another. At the end of the day, there are beans and lentils EVERYWHERE. He has had SO MUCH FUN! I think that he's learning by dumping and so I give him something that I don't consider wasteful (old stale beans I've had for years and wouldn't eat anyway) to dump.
I doubt you can teach him to dump only in the bath tub. Maybe you can teach him to dump his beans rather than other things, but he has to have access all day, not just once a day in the bath. Beans vacuum easily.
This too shall pass.
