The roof tiles in your example are represented by a 2-dimensional Material (Chief Architect X11 Reference Manual, page 1023); Materials can use Material Maps (page 1024) to simulate a 3-dimensional surface using Bump maps and Normal maps; only specific Rendering techniques take advantage of these maps. If you want a true 3-dimensional surface, you need to use 3-dimensional objects or Symbols for the tiles.

No I don't believe so. Did you follow through the link I posted above and the links within the link ?  I believe Joe and I both posted examples.
