Nick, there is no reason at all to go to any length to level that floor to accommodate a mortar pre-slope. Just make your patch, install your clamping drain, and make your pre-slope.

Eric, I believe the technical term for what you have there is a bit of a mess. Well, that's one of the technical terms, anyway. :)
