It's impossible to tile textures properly in FG.
FG uses an irregular triangle mesh and not square tiles like MSFS.
Even if you managed to tile a texture across the mesh you would still end up
with a mess around the edges of the texture where the triangles don't end on
the edge of the textures.
You would need to clip a texture into the mesh for it to work properly and in
the process you end up with a grid or semi tile based system. :)

Currently there are no tools to do what you want to do and you would have to
do some serious work on the FG scenery code to support what you want to do.

You have a few options
1. Learn to live with the FG scenery
2. Code a new or highly modified FG scenery engine
3. Go back to MSFS and pretend you never saw FG
