Is it possible to create a tile grid from loaded data, say a set of las tiles and export them as shape areas with the name matched to the loaded data?

    Yes, I would suggest using File->Create New Map Catalog to create a map catalog of all of the tile layers. Then right-click on the map catalog in the Control Center and select to create layer bounding boxes/coverages and press Yes to create bounding boxes. Each box should contain the coverage with the name and other attributes. You can export that to an area Shapefile using File->Export->Export Vector Data.
