Putting wall ceramic tile over wall ceramic tile in bathroom shower

That is a very bad idea. There are thinset materials that would work--Two part powder and liquid latex-

But the extra layer will cause problems --mixer valve will be to deep into the wall--how will you cover the exposed 'sandwich ' on the edges?

Usually shower walls are replaced because the are old and unsightly or failing.

Also the mixer valve is aging and could use replacing.

The quick answer--yes---(but it's not wise)---Mike---
