The visitors came out firing in the second half and they almost went ahead after 50 minutes when Dani Carvajal played in Karim Benzema, who saw his first-time strike saved by Andre Onana.
As well as the disallowed goal, Tadic hit a post and Ajax were full value for their equaliser scored by Hakim Ziyech.
Although his team now look well in control of the tie ahead of the return at the Bernabeu on Tuesday March 5, Solari said he was taking nothing for granted yet.
"There were a lot of things we needed to do to get this result".
But referee Damir Skomina decided that Dusan Tadic was offside and obstructing the view of Courtois.
Real, victor of the last three Champions Leagues, recovered in the second half after being outplayed by underdog Ajax before the break at a packed Johan Cruyff Arena, when the hosts had a goal disallowed by VAR - the first time the video referee had overturned a Champions League goal.
Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag was bemused by the VAR decision.
"I think it was the right decision, when it happened I thought maybe offside", Courtois told BT Sport. I want to congratulate their great fans and a team that plays such good football, with real character, despite them having so many youngsters.
"But we have continued well and have received our opportunities afterwards. We underperformed against Heracles and Feyenoord in the league", he said of recent domestic defeats that left Ajax off the pace in the Dutch title race. Ziyech's shot missed power and direction and hit Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Karim Benzema fired in the game's real opening goal on the hour mark after being teed up by Vinicius Junior.
Ajax will parade their latest crop of young gems at the Johan Cruyff Arena, where Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt will attempt to live up to already-swelling reputations while the likes of Donny van de Beek, Andre Onana and Kasper Dolberg could also enhance theirs.
Madrid play Ajax on Wednesday in the first leg of the last 16, hoping to take one step closer to their fifth European triumph in six years.
"[Vinicius] did well, but they all did", the Argentine said.
