You don't say how many corners are coming up so it's hard to tell how bad it is.
If the cement is being pulled up by the tile, your floor must be in pretty bad shape. You can try spreading some titebond adhesive or tile adhesive under the corners and weigh down with a heavy object till it dries.
Eventually it will probably be necessary to remove the tile and level out with a self leveling floor leveler after removing the loose concrete.

It will be batter that you remove the tiles and level it, as fixing it without removing the tiles will only be a time being solution and after some time it will again come out. So it is better to fix now rather then letting it create more problem.
