On an offline deployment, if I add the executable to the tools folder then how can I execute it from WinPE knowing the drive letter is subject to change. I'm looking for the path to specify for the "start in" location option.
Does the tools folder get copied to the virtual X: drive?

If you would like to add files to WinPE you do this best with in MDT workbench.
On the share, select properties. Then go to the Windows Pe x86 Settings and click browse for folder to add. You also need to do this on the Windows Pe x64 tab if you have a x64 WinPE.

I'm attempting to get the McAfee Encryption Refresh Tool to work properly.
I should have stated I would need to access the executable both in and out of the WinPE environment. My main problem is I'm not sure what to specify for the start in path.

In the "extra directory to add" you can create a folder structure.
For example if I would like to add folder D:\MDTStuff\x86. Inside this folder I can have structure
This would match WinPE structure nicely.
WinPE boot drive is always X: (or environment variable %SystemDrive%)
I don't know how to access the connected deployment share drive unless you are using VBScript or Powershell. If you are using vbscript or powershell you should look for the MDT environment variable DeployRoot. The bdd.log will show some interesting variabels. Perhaps you can find what you are looking for in there.
If you are using a batch file you can use
if exist Z:\Control\CustomSettings.ini set Deploydrive=Z:
if exist Y:\Control\CustomSettings.ini set Deploydrive=Y:
if exist V:\Control\CustomSettings.ini set Deploydrive=V:

This document spells it out pretty well:
