Simply Build It

It would be best to use self levelling compound.

Google it, for reviews and recommended products.

SLC won't cut it for a 2" deep hole. Are the holesin the surface of the concrete or just where you haven't removed all the tile adhesive?

If holes in concrete fill the holes up with a small aggregate concrete. If you haven't got all the old addy off then try to do so without damaging the concrete underneath.

You might need to put SLC over the top afterwards.
