I have already built index for genome fasta by bowtie2-build genome.fa aspergillus.fumigatus

but I don't know why tophat can't find them :(

Build genome

bowtie2-build -f genome_bowtie2_build/genome.fa genome_bowtie2_build/genome

That is, keep the name of build files same as that of fasta file and preferably keep them in the same location.

Run tophat. genome_bowtie2_build/genome is the location of genome build files (try removing .fa from your command).

tophat2 -p 10 -o tophat2/sample1/ genome_bowtie2_build/genome sample1.fastq

If you want to provide gtf file, build transcriptome. Genome build location is also provided in the command.

tophat -G basic.annotation.gtf --transcriptome-index=./transcriptome_data/basic.annotation genome_bowtie2_build/genome

and then run tophat with gtf file

tophat2 -p 10 -G basic.annotation.gtf --transcriptome-index transcriptome_data/basic.annotation -o tophat2/Sample1 genome_bowtie2_build/genome sample1.fastq

But if you starting, may be you should start with Hisat.
