The floor doesnt necessarily have to be level, but it does have to be pretty flat. That being said, how out of level is it? If theres a lot of leveling to do, you could use self leveling compound (slc) over the plywood directly and tile right to the slc. If theres just a few dips, you could put down cement board and then do your leveling with a patching compound.
