Create Promoted Links App in SharePoint 2013/2016 using PowerShell

Tiles list is a new list template introduced in SharePoint 2013 to add links with Tiles view. We can create the Tiles List out of the box using Promoted Links which is a simple process as we use any list template while creating a list.
