The Paris Saint-Germain attacker scored twice at the competition in Russia, but could not prevent his team from being eliminated at the quarter-final stage on Friday night.
The 26-year-old only just recovered from a broken foot to take part in this summer's tournament, and Tite has paid tribute to Neymar's performance levels.
"Neymar, we've seen there was a clear evolution coming to his top performance," Tite told reporters.
"Before the match when he was selected man of the match [against Mexico] we got together and I said, 'Neymar, you are 100%'. Because you can realise when the mind is thinking and the body is responding. The dribbling, the feinting, the speed.
"He came back better than I imagined. Physically he's also very well gifted, he's very fast. In terms of high-intensity actions, no-one in the World Cup comes close."
Neymar drew criticism for his perceived theatrics during the competition.
