Welcome to the forums!

I'm not sure you will be able to return the tile back to it's original state
Products like 'goof off' and 'oops' along with denatured alcohol will dissolve latex paint but won't have much, if any effect on solvent based coatings. Lacquer thinner along with elbow grease might dissolve the paint and as last resort you could use a paint and varnish remover.

All this would be for naught if they sanded the tile before applying the paint. If you can remove the paint from the tile and it looks ok, you'll probably need to clean out some of the grout and then regrout the tile to get it to look right.
