I agree with most of the others who say to remove the tile. It's really not that much work to demo. If you're worried about moisture between the drywall and wainscotting, use a waterproof membrane product that you paint on. Something like RedGard. It's good stuff! Sure, you could go over the top of the tile, but I think you'll run into more problems during the install as well as down the road.

This is a good list. There is one tool I would add though. My favorite is an SDS Rotary Hammer. I have the Bosch Bulldog Xtreme and love it. It can drill through concrete, brick, or masonry. You can buy a $25 attachment and turn it into a mixer. On top of that, you can use it a "mini-jackhammer".
