You are right.

run_tests.sh simply runs unit tests which cover tempest's code itself.

In order to run the tests for the various OpenStack services, use tox.
In tox.ini there are several environments defined which run different sets
of tests.
When all you want to do is run just a specific test module or test case, it
is possible to use the 'all' environment. For instance, to run only
scenarios I usually do:

tox -eall -- tempest.scenario

Hope this helps,
