Capacitors are energy-storage devices that filter the high frequencies. A cap lets the tone control roll off the treble response, progressively warming the tone. The higher the value, the more bass output from the tone control at its "zero" setting.
A cap wired to a potentiometer creates a standard tone control, as explained in this Article: How a tone control works.
