OK to build up cement backer w/thinset?

I am replacing the bottom 4 tiles in a shower. After replacing the greenboard & then a cement backer, the new base is sunk 1/16" below the old base above it. I'm thinking of spreading a thin layer of thinset then letting it dry before starting to tile to build up the new base. Would this cause any problems? Any other ideas are welcome. I'd rather not remove what I've already done though.
