Do you have to build out your stair treads to meet code? - I would like to do tile on my risers. Do I need to build out my stair treads so there is enough space or can I simply tile over existing stairs?

In general, as long as you maintain a minimum 3/4" overhang on the nosing, it should be fine. There are other considerations here;

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 15 Ways to Make Your Home Speak Spanish
Tiles on Risers (Bandas de Azulejos)Risers covered in Mexican tile are both eye catching and practical, as the tile protects the risers from scuffs and scratches.
Tiled stair kicks in alternating or random patterns are a lovely way to add pattern and color. They're so evocative of the Mediterranean that they make me want an olive and a glass of red.
