That last picture is where it would sit when the tensioner is not pulled over. Pull the tensioner over to the driver side and it will slip right on.

It won't go over far enough. Or maybe I just don't know the limit of how far ... to the right hand direction the tensioner pulley can move?

So how far can the tensioner go before I risk breaking it off? I'm pretty sure I've hit the limit and the belt will not fit. (look at the picture you can see there is only about 3" of space left for the whole tensioner to fit inside the belt. The tensioner would have to actually touch the alternator it seems.

Or should I just force the tensioner over to the right more?

I can't even get a wrench on the tensioner on the inside of the area of the belt, it's about 2" too small it seems.

Take the belt off the idler pulley, put it around the tensioner, then put the wrench on the tensioner and loop the belt around the idler.
