sounds like lime and/or calcium buildup. CLR maybe even white vinegar and a good scrub brush should clean em up fine. Normally fixtures are set in plaster for fast set and last thru the ages :} only way to remove is with a hammer and in pcs

If they are not as skymaster said and are glued on and them caulked take a razor knife and keep cutting until it turns loose.

If the shelves are in a recess, they may be integrated into the tile wall. Shelves are not generally just caulked in place.
