If you want tile to stick on a wall without sliding, you need a non sag mortar. Otherwise use a ledger board.

Depending on what you're going over, Ditra XL works pretty well to meet up to 3/4" hardwood. Over a plywood subfloor, 1/4" cement board and a heavy notched trowel might work.

Perhaps you should use Warm Wire then. Don't use Ditra Heat if you are not going to follow Schluter's recommendations.
