What size tile? The bigger the tile the easier it will be to get an
even job when applying over a brick face. You could install backerboard
over the brick and tile over that. Use thinset and concrete nails in
the mortar joints. Then use thinset to install the tile.
Put a straight edge of some kind against the brick first and see what
you're up against.
Found this at johnbridge.com when I google searched "tiling over brick" (in
"If the bricks are set fairly even, you can simply attach the tiles with
thin set. Otherwise, I would float over the whole thing with mortar -- then
tile, again using thinset mortar"
After scrubbing bricks clean, I usually spray bricks with water to dampen
them before mortaring, as it results in a better bond, as it slows the
drying and setting of the mortar.
