What about filing a taper on the end of the scraper, making it more like a wood 
chisel?  With some practice, maybe you could hit the
edge of the tile at just the right angle, so the sharp edge would get under the 
edge of the tile, then the natural lever action as
the scraper moves would lever the tile away from the wood.  You might also want 
to round or blunt the corners to make them less apt
to dig in.
