Baseboard question

Dont know if this is accurate or not but thought I would post this as a question.

While reading online someone said to use cardboard from a box and that is considered your "mortar" you put your tile over it and that is what the finished product looks like in height compared to the baseboard.

The room i'm installing it in previously had carpet with what looks like a pretty thick pad as well. Doing the above method and using a caliper tool the gap between the cardboard+tile and baseboard is .20.

Based on the reading here it sounds like 1/4 is recommended. While trying the method and putting the tile underneath the baseboard if you tape the baseboard you can feel the vibration on the tile.

So I am probably overthinking this but should I remove baseboard to get that extra .05 of an inch or keep it as is?
