The preslope isn't critical, as long as it has some pitch, 1/4 inch per ft is recommended but it can be less where the drain is close to the wall. The top mudbed is critical and it's ideal to have the perimeter level all the way around. I have tiled situations like you have and made the top mud bed out of level at the perimeter so it's not so steep at the drain end. You just have to cut the bottom row of wall tiles to fit the slope.
