Tile on a tub deck.

Can tile be installed on a formica tub deck? Does a backboard have to be installed?

Yes, with the application of a good cement based backerboard you should be able to successfully install ceramic or porcelain tile.  Make sure to use adhesive (thinset) underneath the backerboard too to help make sure it stays in place with the slippery formica.
