Forget tile.
But you can do a floating wood.

Tile is possible, but requires more work.

The particle board and 1/4 layer has to come up if you want tile, nothing can go over it for tile, what's under that subfloor.?)

You sure you don't have OSB?, if particle board, NO, if you plan on tiling, it can't be anywhere in the mix, EVER.:D
