I have a 2" wide plank subfloor. It just happens to run parallel to the direction I want to install oak hardwood flooring in. The hardwood floor is 3". I know I would need another layer of subfloor/underlayment for this to work. But I also want to maintain the floor height to be same as adjacent tile. What is the best way to accomplish this? What's the thinnest I can get away with to be able to support running hardwood parallel to planks?

The thinnest sub floor will be 1/2". To meet the hight of the ceramic you will have to use a product called Natural Reflections by Bruce Hardwoods. It is a 5/16th solid hardwood. You can find it at the 2 big box stores or at most flooring stores under the name of Natural Choice. This is asuming that the ceramic was installed with 1/2" backer board.

I took a closer look at the subfloor. The planks are t&g. Does that make a difference or do I still need to add plywood?

I'm sorry to say but, no it will not make a difference.
