As part of a bathroom renovation I need to cut 1-1/2" off some
floor tile to make room for a marble threshold. One end of the cut is
open so I have room for a small saw but the other end will butt against
the door frame. I wouldn't be able to complete the cut. What's the
best way for me to cut the tile
If you have painted jambs, you might use a thin diamond blade on
an angle grinder to cut the tile and slice on into the jamb to
finish the cut. It could be puttied and painted easier than
pulling the jamb.

I just dealt with the same problem. I got an el-cheapo Skil-was like
from an online source, and a good 4" diamond blade. That makes easy
work of cutting
the long run, but as you note you can't get closer than about inch
and a half to the wall.
Just as Dan says, for that I got a 4" Ryobi angle grinder at HD and
put the diamond blade on it.
That allowed me to get a bit closer. To cut the last little bit I had
the blade on into the wall, but simce I'm going to have baseboards
that will get covered
