The way that slot height affects intonation is by the location of the high edge of the slot. Typically, and properly, the nut slot is cut on a slight slope, with the higher edge of the nut adjacent to the fretboard. The slot drops away towards the headstock, clearing the string lying in the slot, providing a definite single point of contact of the string on the nut. If for some reason, the high edge of the cut slot is on the opposite side of the nut, well, this effectively changes (slightly) the scale length, and will affect (esp. in relation to other strings that may have properly cut slots) intonation.

Adjustment and compensation of inherently imprecise intonation can be addressed by using a nut that subtlety changes individual string lengths. Ervana is maybe the most well-known of those type of nut systems.
