In the following snippet, the only ties that look nice are the ones that happen immediately before and after the line break. The other ties touch the ledger lines.
     The tie/ledger line collision doesn't happen in 4/4.

Not that it helps, but it's nothing to do with 3/4 or 4/4, but with the dotted note, apparently:

\relative c'' {
  \time 4/4
  <c e' c>2.~ <c e' c>4~
  <c e' c>4~  <c e' c>2.~
  <c e' c>2~  <c e' c>~
  \time 2/4
  <c e' c>4.~ <c e' c>8~
  <c e' c>8~  <c e' c>4.~
  <c e' c>4~  <c e' c>~
  \time 2/8
  <c e' c>8.~ <c e' c>16~
  <c e' c>16~ <c e' c>8.~
  <c e' c>8~  <c e' c>~
  <c e' c>4

By the way... The coordinate system for slur control points is always a staff-space per unit in x and y, with origin at the default start position of the slur, right?
Is it possible to map this to, say,
        [0, 1] ~ [x_start, x_end] in x-direction, and
        [0, 1] ~ [0, 1 staff-space] in y-direction?
This would give manual settings at least a bit of robustness against varying line-breaks.
