Repair or replace this tile in a half demoed bath

I am buying a 1900 home where someone yanked a tub and left the bath have demoed. We would like to repair the missing tiles and put in a pedisal/clawfoot tub. I found a tile (Daltile pepper white ) that matches very closely so repairing and replacing tile seems doable.

The tile contractor says repairing the tile won't work because the diamond metal mesh won't allow the tile to match up. (depth-wise) They said the lath and plaster should be completely removed, add drywall and re-tile. Attached is a picture of the mess.


Thoughts?
