Welcome, Wing.

What you really want to do at this point is remove the drywall, correct the problem by moving the offending pipe (if that's what you've got) or furring out the studs such that your new drywall lies flat when installed.

You really, really don't want to try to flatten the tile installation while setting the tiles. Nor would you want to use thinset mortar to flatten a wall to that extent, or any extent, technically. There are patching compounds suitable for the application, but that's an excessive use of such material to my thinking when the wall can be corrected otherwise. And I think you'll find you can replace the drywall more easily in this case than you can plaster the existing wall flat.

My opinion; worth price charged.
