In the past I have had good luck repairing this kind of problem with
instant glues. Put a bead close to the edges and a few elsewhere and put a
weight on the top of the tile for a hour or so. I am sure other glues,
including tile cement could also be used. I have found that a weight on
top of the tile is a must.

Step 1. Get rid of the moisture source. Ours was an overtightened
plastic nut at the tank. A very slow leak, but time was the enemy.
Step 2. We had to do nothing but press the tile back once the surface
had dried. If it isn't dry, nothing will work. If dry and not
sticking with the original glue, then any reasonable type of glue will
do. Remove entirely if you can, then carefully resurface floor and
tile with a thin layer of contact cement. I'd thin a little first
with contact cement solvent [which I happen to have on hand.] Don't
overdo that, and take precaution for the fumes. OR, there is water
soluble contact cement; not soluble once set. Replace carefully,
pressing firmly into place, starting at one edge.
