Most self leveling products like K-15 Ardex have limitations on how thick they can be applied. Also, how high a lift (single poor) can be done at a time. I believe that an aggregate will be required for anything over an inch. Self leveling products are very expensive and tempermental when it comes to application.

If you are going to do this with a cementitious product, look into using a product like Paragon Deck Mud to do the actual slope correction. Basically it is a sand and Portland cement mixture that will give you about 1” over 10 sqft for less than $5. A self leveling pour can be applied over the top of that.
