Missing mortar?

I noticed some water stain & calking was peeling above my back of house double sliders leading out to my ground floor patio lanai. I climbed out my upstairs bedroom window onto the roof of the lanai & it looks like the builder has neglected to put any mortar along the gap between the last row of tiles & the house wall. I am guessing this may be the cause of the leak? I would appreciate any suggestions on the best material to use as a DIY project. Of course I will not need to much material. The lowest pic shows part of the lanai roof that has the gap filled. Thanks

I've been watching this to see if a roofer chimes in. You can mix up some mortar and fill that void. There is a stop (metal piece) either weep screed or a flashing. All mortar will do it maybe divert water so it does not run down under the tile.
