I'd like to work with what I've got, but my budget is $1000. Can I change the colors without actually ripping them out?

You could use tile paint to paint the tiles white. And I would paint the wood of the vanity white too. Then add grey towels I think.
Hmmm....

You can always try Tub Re-Glazing, you might be able to find a reasonable guy in Craigslist to glaze your tub and tiles.

I have used the tile paint in my own home projects and loved it! We used a marine grade and it held up very nicely. I would get recommendations before doing a re-glaze of the tub, but I know folks who have been successful.
I like Carolin's suggestions.

In our business ,we usually are doing a complete remodel of the bathroom. Ask your contractor for referrals to sub-contractors for the re-glazing. Good luck!

Thank you Hudson Street Design :-) Glad that you have experience with tile paint and like it.
I haven't used it myself, but have heard good things about it.

In my opinion you can still work with the wine colored tub, the tile though has to go (easier than working with pink tile and making the tub go.) If you don't mind a dark bathroom, id recommend dark brown tiles

I would get rid of the pink tiles if possible and go with grays, blacks and whites. Even if you can't afford to do new tile, that palette will help bring the wine and pink shades more up to date.

I would spend every dime on reglazing the tub, white;) Then when I could afford it, move on to a new toilet, and sink. I would wait and buy them new as they are not as expensive.

I would paint the tiles and reglaze the tub and toilet. Paint the vanity and splurge for a new vanity top with a undermount sink and new faucet. The right paint can fix anything.

Also a cheap DYI project is to trim out your mirror with wood moulding;)

Add a wood cover to the front of tub to match cabinets. It might soften the color.
