SSL Certificate details

How does the shell know which certificate to be used for SSL connection?
Does Mongo DB also support TLS ?

Are you talking about the mongo shell connection to Atlas? And by certificate you mean X.509 certificates?
If yes, then by default Atlas uses SCRAM (i.e. username/password) for authentication. According to Atlas, X.509 certificates are not available in the free tier.
For non-managed servers (i.e. non-Atlas), you can setup the mongod server to use X.509 certificates.

Yes, MongoDB supports TLS.
