So I'm assuming the back of the shower wall does not sit flat against the wall? Can you send pics of the problem?

Further info

where glass side of neo angle shower meets tiled wall, off ~1" at the top. Pan is level, wall is not plumb. Can glass guy cut this 3/8" tempered glass to fit? Anything else to do?

Once the glass is tempered, it can not be cut. Will have to have a new piece of glass cut and tempered if that will fix your situation.

Short of what Czizzi says you might try and find some type of molding to cover the gap. For instance a jelousy molding that matches the tile might work. Can you upload a pic and maybe we can suggest possible fixes.

I know it might be too late, or lots of work, but is it possible to remove the top few tiles and reposition them with extra thinset or use a shim to bring the tiles into square?

Can I shim out the U channel towards the top then cover that gap? So then the U channel is plumb. I swear that wall was plumb after I was done tiling!
As soon as SO gets back, I will take a picture as I can't manage the glass by myself

I kind of assumed this was a frame less shower. But if you have u-channels then that is the way to go.

Everyone learns the hard way the first time. Part of the learning curve and a great reason to be a member of the forums here. I think new glass is what you need. Trim will not work in a wet location, so lets look to make this a seamless as possible. Removing tile and furring the wall probably is not going to happen either.
