So we were playing the enclave vs brotherhood scenario and both megaton and tower were settlement 3. While thematically we wanted to place the bomb to megaton, we ended up randomizing it.

Is there a tie breaker for highest settlement? There were still many tiles unexplored so no 4 on board.

In specific rules where there may a tie that cannot be resolved, the rules reference always says the first player decides, so you could play it that way if you wanted to be consistent with the way the rules generally handle these things.

That being said, I think I would choose randomly the same way you did so that the first player can't give themselves an unfair advantage.

If by "we" you mean that all players preferred bombing megaton, then you should have bombed megaton. Shared enjoyment trumps rules.

There was one player actively doing the main quest in Tower so simply choosing would hace affected the game balance. Otherwise ya, would have agreed upon Megaton.
