In this instance, out of fear I would not say a word!
Wowsers that woman has issues. Why install the tiles to constantly freak out every day of your life someone is going to crack them? That must be a pretty anxious existence.
Don't talk to anyone about it, don't touch it, don't look at it. You have absolutely no idea it's there.
If she comes home, sees it & confronts you, you are HORRIFIED! You were SO CAREFUL the WHOLE time she's been gone! You are POSITIVE you've never seen it & have no idea how it happened! If you can get a bit teary at the thought of doing something like this to those beautiful (read: rather ordinary & seemingly overpriced) tiles, the better!
Ordinarily I'd say confess & apologise profusely but it sounds like there will be no coming back from that if you did.
I'm with everyone else, don't ever admit anything. Ever.
she sounds like a LL from hell lol
id say nothing and deny, deny, deny.
ffs accidents happen woman
I also wouldn't admit anything! Would it be worth getting a tiler in to see if they could fix/hide it more? Your MIL sounds awful!
Burn the house down!
Here is another thought. Clean the floor just before she gets home so it's noticeably sparkling. Then say to her "oh MIL when I was on my hand and knees cleaning your floor I noticed you have chipped your tile! When did you do that? I'm always so careful"! She'll be so floored (!) you'll be home free 😄

Tell her after you have the tile fixed. It's the right thing to do. Your mil can't be that bad if she allowed your family to move into her house (I hate guests that stay more than one night).
