In my humble opinion, nails have little purpose in construction of a deck. There are at least five different types of screws made specifically for this application. They have torx heads and are very solid. Only specific instructions I would otherwise have is that if you really want to press the old and the new sisters together, drill a pilot hole in the side ...

While you should get the contractor back to sort poor work, I would hesitate as they may not know any better... Often those shelves are mounted first then the tiles are cut to ...

I cannot imagine how any "glue" that would hold those. But then again, you may want to inquire your local big box or hardware store and ask.

In a word no. First issue is you are renting. The owner has specified no holes in the tile. There is no guarantee the adhesive, if it held won't damage the tile when the cabinet is removed. I would suggest getting some sort of a base cabinet, perhaps a bookcase size piece and mount the mirror cabinet to the top .
