The ability to send an alert when a flow file execution error occurs with the Command line is currently not built into the Tableau Prep product.

Possible Workaround:

With Tableau Prep Conductor, which is part of the Tableau Data Management add-on for Tableau Server and Tableau Online, you can run flows on the server and receive email notifications when flows fail. It is possible to run the flow on the server and receive an email notification when the flow fails. Consider this as an alternative.

NOTE: You will need a Data Management add-on license.
