tikz normally doesn't scale nodes (and text in node). You can force
it but it is not the default.

And Bruce is quite right, that a scale factor is the best. If you
know the font sizes you want to use the scale factor is easy to
calculate and gives you the freedom to adapt the font size easily
later if needed.
