There are couple of approaches to achieve what you are looking for. In the first approach you have to edit the Style of RadTileViewItem and put the close button there. Please see attachment #1 for further reference.
The second approach is to set the HeaderTemplate of the generated TileViewItem. Please see attachment #2 for more information.
Let me know if you have additional questions or comments.
