What a great idea!
No it's not flexible tile, it is most often used as an accent trim, since it is fairly costly.
I agree that tile is not anything close to a useful surface for a tub. To my mind you have two choices; either remove the tub and find something else to replace it with, say a shower, as one example, or you can paint it.
As has already mentioned, paint can be a very attractive solution, and is within the skill set of most average people to apply.
