In this video, astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson says that when he told James Cameron that he got the night sky inaccurate for April 15, 1912, he says that Cameron told him:

Last time I checked, Titanic has grossed $1.3 billion worldwide. Imagine how much more it would've grossed had I gotten the sky correct.

Did Cameron mean that it wouldn't have made any difference in the money the film grossed if the sky was accurate or not?

Cameron later put in the accurate sky for the film's 3D re-release in 2012.

He was being sarcastic. The real draw was a combination of the romance, special effects, story and the cultural phenomenon. No one was going because there were stars.
