For the formula nCln(Tf/Ti), if we were to calculate entropy change for a liquid or solid state substance, do we plug in the heat capacity for that substance in liquid/solid state? I thought Cv or Cp is only used for gases.

You pretty much always include them for entropy calculations. Because the units have to cancel out to leave you with J/K.
