Your installation is probably going to need to be replaced soon, but for now let's stop the leaking. Save all loose tile, you will need to re-use them, matching tile is very difficult. Soak the tile in hot water, Then clean all the grout and glue or thinset off the tile, as much as possible without breaking them. Now assuming that the wall board is still in place(if not that will have to be repaired also, that is a whole new ballgame) Re-adhere the tile to the wallboard with a good quality tile setting mastic, let that set for 24 hrs. But if you must 5 hrs will do then grout, with a rubber float,then clean up with grout sponge and a little water, you will need a small rinse bucket, let area dry a little then apply phenoseal caulking by where the tile meets the tub, and you might as well run a bead along all the expansion joints(corners)
Good luck,
