??? Use 1/8" lathe strips, and the extra-long Rock-On screws I guess...at least that's what I would do on instinct.

thats what I did to shim out CBU over my folded shower basin liner.

I got some 6' x 1 1/2" x 1/4" lengths of trellis wood at HD. Worked fine.

Shimming works fine. Another more common way is to only bring the CBU down to the top of the tub lip. The moisture barrier in back does overlap all the way into the tub lip though. The bottom row of tile just spans over that gap at the tub lip & is caulked at the bottom.
