I am trying to tile over concrete and wanted to raise the floor 1/2" before tiling. Could I use plywood for this? or even Durock? We just do not want to tile directly to the concrete and we would like to bring the level of the floor up to the height of the hardwood flooring in the ajoining rooms.

You want to use backer board. When you go to your local hardware store tell them what you are doing and they will point you in the right direction.
