If you brought the vapor barrier down over the flange you'll still be OK. The wall tile can bridge a 1/2" gap easily. Matter of fact, you'll want to stop the tile 1/8" above the tub anyway so the gap becomes 3/8". I don't think you encounter problems grouting that small of an unbacked area. Fill the joint up good, it will stick.

You can always run a good ol bead of high grade silicon caulk in there along that flange for added insurance.
