"le" in this case is a plural direct object reference to something (we don't know what in this case, although whatever it is, is feminine). In addition, the possessive adjective "tue" is plural. These provide context hints that the subject, which is not stated, is plural, not singular.
CreyB: Perhaps your idea here derives from Spanish, because, although your post about 'le' is incorrect, as kvargman notes, Spanish sometimes uses le in the way you describe. But Spanish would not use le in this way in this sort of sentence. Since 'le' is simply the definite article, your post misinforms.
"They aren't yours" was marked incorrect but is in fact correct English.
