While creating Tiles List programmatically we have to pass template ID. For Promoted Links the template Id is 170.
But the interesting part is, we will have to pass the TemplateFeatureId
as well for Promoted Tiles.
Below code has been written in CSOM and Powershell script.
$ListInfo = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ListCreationInformation
$ListInfo.Title = $listName
$ListInfo.TemplateType = “170”
$spList = $web.Lists.Add($ListInfo)
$spList.Description = $ListTitle
