Do you have a picture? This can be difficult--plaster lath(expanded mesh) and several coats of morter may be the best solution--hard to offer advice without seeing the situation--Mike--

You may have moisture issues with the tub being so close to the brick so I assume you are going to cover it...Cement backer board, Schluter membrane, thinset, tile.

You must waterproof it and even put a vapour barrier there too but since we don't know where you are, I'll leave that.
