Yes,but it's messy.

A 4" angel grinder with a diamond bit is a start---then a milti tool with a modified diamond cutter.

Post a picture if it is possible.--It might be easier to build out the area above the tile and just mount the microwave out a bit farther than usual.---Mike---

The issue with cutting material on the wall are the corners. Tools with circular blades can't get in the corners or too close to the cabinet sides. Even jigsaws will hit the sides before the blade gets to the corner.
