For tie directions, take a look at the list of predefined commands at
I think you can guess from the name, which command to use to direct it
upwards or downwards, respectively.

You're right, the tie is still horizontal, i.e. it will end half a
line too low or too high (I lack the expertise to change tie direction
as well). It still looks rather good to me - way better than the
alternative (tieing to an invisible note of the appropriate pitch)
because that would let the tie end much too soon.
