When laying tile, do I need to leave a space between the tile edge and the wall for grout; or does the edge of the tile go right up to the wall and is covered up by your molding.

Hi Slim ,
I would (and do) install your cuts within an 1/8" of the wall and put the moulding down on top of that. This will afford you a small amount of expansion should your substrate decide to do so. And it will be under the baseboard and out of sight.
Regards and Good Luck,
