I'm building an addition on to my house and made the floor braces out of oak. I have been told that oak boards are strong enough, but are too flexible to support tile flooring. Is there any way I could still use tile, perhaps with some type of flexible grout? I don't want the concrete type to crack whenever someone bounces too hard on my floor.

There are epoxy grouts and also an acrylic substitute you can use to mix the grout with instead of water. Ask about the acrylic at any tile center.
